Seven months after being released from prison, a 22-year-old Saukville man is in trouble with the law again after being stopped for speeding on Highway 57 Monday.

Drew D. Geib was charged just hours after his arrest with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia — the same charges his younger brother faces in connection with a traffic stop in June in Port Washington.

According to the criminal complaint filed in Ozaukee County Circuit Court, an Ozaukee County sheriff’s deputy stopped Geib for speeding on Highway 57 near Willow Road in the Town of Saukville at 5:54 a.m. Monday.

While speaking with Geib, the deputy noticed on the center console of the vehicle a small bag shaped like a muscular gorilla, which he recognized as a bag used to store marijuana, the complaint states.

Geib’s vehicle was searched and marijuana was found in the gorilla bag as well as in a lunch box that was behind the driver’s seat, according to the complaint.

In the trunk, the deputy found a backpack that contained multiple bags of marijuana, a scale with marijuana residue on it and a box of plastic bags. The marijuana weighed 100 grams, and because of its quantity, packaging and the scale, the deputy concluded Geib intended to sell the drugs, the complaint states.

Geib is currently on probation for a third-degree sexual assault conviction.

He was charged in November 2018 with two counts of sexual assault after two women told authorities he forced himself on them earlier that year.

He pleaded guilty to one of the charges while the other was dismissed, and in May 2019 he was sentenced by Ozaukee Circuit Judge Sandy Williams to three years in prison and three years of extended supervision.

Geib, authorities confirmed, is the brother of Reese Geib, 18, who was pulled over in Port Washington’s Upper Lake Park at 9:30 p.m. Friday, June 3, just days before his graduation from Port Washington High School.

In his car, police found a significant amount of marijuana in various forms as well as a loaded 9mm handgun along with a makeshift extended magazine for the gun and ski masks, according to the criminal complaint filed in that case.

Authorities later discovered the gun was stolen from Milwaukee.

Reese Geib has pleaded not guilty to the drug charges as well as charges of carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor, and receiving a stolen firearm, a felony.

He has been bound over for trial and is scheduled to appear next in court on Oct. 20.
