Two face charges in big marijuana grow
Two Tomahawk residents are facing multiple drug charges after a total of 44 marijuana plants were found growing in their East Lincoln Avenue home.
Jamaal Wilson, 33, and Jessica Teich, 38, were bound over to face trial in the case last Thursday. Wilson and Teich are each charged with manufacture/delivery of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, maintaining a drug trafficking place and possession of drug paraphernalia. Teich has been released on a $5,000 bond while Wilson remains in the Lincoln County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond.
Tomahawk police executed a search warrant on the house occupied by Wilson and Teich at 327 E. Lincoln Ave. on April 10. Police noticed a large amount of paraphernalia on a table in the living room. In the basement they discovered a marijuana growing operation featuring fluorescent lights, fans, heaters and tinfoil on the walls. Police also found evidence that the plants were being harvested. All the plants were seized by Tomahawk police, along with about 320 grams of loose marijuana found scattered around the residence.
Both defendants have court appearances scheduled in May.
