Mosinee family accused of running drug operation


A Marathon County family is accused of running a drug operation out of their Mosinee home, according to Marathon County Sheriff's Department officials.

Investigators say they discovered the operation after a 19-year-old woman was left at hospital for a drug overdose.

Police say they arrested Jacob Gould who authorities say left the woman at the hospital.

They say that led to the arrest of his family members.

Gould's two brothers, Jeremy and Jerrod, and their father Jerald Gould all had their first appearance in court on Friday.

The three face multiple charges, including maintaining a drug trafficking place and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Police searched the Gould's home in Mosinee on Wednesday.

According to the police report, investigators found more than $27,000 in cash.

Investigators say more than 100 pounds of marijuana were recently moved from the home.

"It is a lucrative activity and that's why people get into that and that's why law enforcement has taken such a strong position that this is an important thing that we need to fight against in our community," said Lance Leonhard, an Assistant District Attorney of Marathon County.

Marsha Mohr, the mother of Jeremy, Jerrod and Jacob Gould, was also charged with harboring or aiding a felon.

Investigators say Mohr deleted messages from her son's phone.

A public defender represented the four in court Friday, but was unavailable for comment.

The family will be back in court on Monday for a hearing on whether they qualify for public defenders.

That decision is based on their incomes.
