RHINELANDER, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Rhinelander high school teacher is due in court Thursday on charges of growing dozens of marijuana plants at his house.

Reports says Joshua Juergens, 35, faces charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and manufacturing marijuana.

The Rhinelander School District says Juergens will remain on paid leave until the investigation is finished.

His bond was set at $1,500 cash.

Investigators say they found about 60 marijuana plants, and a sophisticated growing operation in a hidden room in Juergens' basement.
