TOWN OF WEIN, Wis. (WAOW) — Part of a central Wisconsin town was blocked off Thursday afternoon after reports of suspicious activity.

Law enforcement responded to a residence on Hillsdale Drive in the Town of Wien near Edgar.

They say initial information they receieved warranted a heavy police presence.

Marathon County’s SWAT team searched the property but found nothing of concern.

“We brought in our Bearcat just for precautionary measures based on the initial information that we received,” said Capt. William Millhausen of the Marathon County Sheriff’s Dept. “Obviously we utilized it but, like I said, the circumstances were unfounded.”

The scene cleared around 6:30 P.M.

Captain Millhausen said the situation is still under investigation and that there’s no danger to the public.
