UPDATE: DA: Woman on heroin left in hospital parking lot

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) – A 25-year-old Mosinee man is facing a number of felony charges, after Marathon County Sheriff's Department officials say he drove a woman who was overdosing to a hospital and left her there.

Court records show Jacob Gould injected a 19-year-old woman with heroin on May 26. Authorities say he drove her to St. Clare's Hospital in Weston and left her in the parking lot on the opposite side of the building as the emergency room.

The woman was placed into a coma, due to the overdose, and came out of it a few days later, court records show.

Those records say the woman told investigators, “she had overdosed on heroin four other times, all usually as a result of Gould 'over doing it' with her.”

After the woman came out of the coma, investigators say she told them she didn't remember getting into the truck or going to the hospital.

Gould says the woman came to his house and started having “overdose-related issues” several hours later, so he injected her with Narcan, court records show. Narcan reverses the effects of an opiate overdose and is used as a lifesaving tool in the treatment of those suffering from an opiate overdose.

Gould appeared in Marathon County court Wednesday. His bond was set at $25,000 and does not have an attorney listed.

Marathon County Sheriff's Department officials say when Gould was in court, they searched his home on the 400 block of Lotus Street in Mosinee.

They say evidence of an overdose case was found at the home, as well as about two pounds of marijuana and more than $27,000 in cash.

Investigators say there was also evidence that more than 100 pounds of marijuana was recently moved from the home.

"A lot of times you can find materials that are left behind. Or a lot of people keep ledgers. So they keep a ledger amount because they track what their profit margin is. It's similar to a business where you track what your profit margin versus what you're spending. You can also track poundage, track individuals that they do business with,” explained Marathon County Sheriff Scott Parks.

The sheriff says a 56-year-old man and his two sons were in connection with this case. The sheriff says charges are being recommended for drug trafficking. It is unclear the relation between Gould and the three arrested.

Officers say a 56-year-old woman was also arrested in connection to the heroin overdose case. They say charges of aiding and abetting a felon are being recommended for her. The man, his two sons, and the woman are all expected to make initial appearances in court on Friday. Their names are not being released at this time.
