WAUSAU (WAOW) – Wausau police say an anonymous tip and a vehicle with an equipment defect led to the discovery of seven pounds of marijuana and charges against three Wausau people.
Capt. Ben Bliven said the Tuesday night incident started with a tip involving a house that had been under surveillance.
Bliven said seizing seven pounds of marijuana in a single incident was unique for Wausau.
“We definitely don't come across that every day. That is a large amount,” he said Thursday.
Bliven said the street value of the marijuana ranges from $7,000 to $20,000, depending on its quality.
Following the seizure of the marijuana, Vili Yang, 32, of Wausau, was charged with four felonies, including possessing, manufacturing and delivering marijuana and bail jumping.
May Vue, 31, of Wausau, was charged with one felony: possession with intent to deliver marijuana.
Jacqulyn Gauger, 35, of Wausau, was charged with two felonies: manufacturing and delivery of marijuana and maintaining a drug trafficking place.
According to online court records, the three are to appear in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.
Bail for the women was set at $5,000 cash, court records said. Yang's bail is $50,000 cash.
