As a part of an ongoing investigation into the distribution of drugs deputies have taken another Merrill woman into custody on drug related charges.
On Friday deputies took 51-year old Kathy L. Kufahl into custody at her Town of Pine River Residence. Last week deputies served a search warrant at her Shady Lane Avenue residence and took two women into custody.
Kufahl was brought to the Lincoln County Jail where she was booked on felony charges of maintaining a drug traffic house, delivery of a narcotic, and party to the crime for the delivery of heroine.
Drug investigators advised the investigation is still ongoing and more arrests are possible.
