RHINELANDER, WI (WTAQ) - A Rhinelander High School English teacher is due in court Friday for allegedly stealing electronic items from the school, and growing marijuana at his home.
35-year-old Joshua Juergens was arrested Wednesday at his home near Rhinelander.
Oneida County Sheriff Grady Hartman said a search warrant was executed at Juergens' home, where they found undisclosed items that were suspected to be stolen -- plus a growing operation with numerous marijuana plants.
No charges have been filed in that case yet. Juergens did appear in Oneida County Circuit Court Thursday on a separate disorderly conduct charge. A $500 bond was set in that matter.
Rhinelander assistant school superintendent Dave Wall said he had no reason to believe that other people were involved -- and that staff members and students were never put in jeopardy from the incidents.
Officials said Juergens joined the Rhinelander faculty in August.
