Woman faces more charges
Investigators have added another home to a series of drug-related burglaries linked to a New London woman.
Marina A. Goza, 27, is charged with burglary, theft, possession of narcotics and felony bail jumping.
She is now accused of breaking into at least seven homes in order to steal prescription drugs.
On April 4, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Thorpe and Reserve Deputy Andrew Kizewski were on patrol on County Trunk W in Mukwa when they noticed an orange pill container on the side of the road.
They stopped to examine the container. The label said a July 2012 prescription was for oxycodone. Inside the container was another, smaller container that was for a November 2014 prescription for hydrocodone.
The prescriptions were made out to a resident on Guhl Road in the town of Caledonia.
When the deputies went to the home in Caledonia, they found pry marks on one of the doors. Nobody answered the door, so Thorpe and Kizewski canvassed the neighbors.
One neighbor, who lives about 3/10 of a mile from the Guhl Road house, said a woman knocked on her door and asked to come inside. She did not allow the woman into her home. She said the woman drove away in a red four-door car.
Thorpe later spoke with the Guhl Road resident who said the pill containers belonged to her.
Goza faces multiple charges for daytime burglaries involving the theft of prescription drugs.
She is a suspect in this burglary, because she drives a red Ford Focus and told investigators in March that she threw an empty pill container from a house she broke into out the window of her vehicle.
