JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin man, in jail for selling drugs to an undercover officer, is accused of using a child to sell the drugs.

Rock County authorities arrested 32-year-old Jamie Jacobson and his wife, 27-year-old Jennifer Jacobson, earlier this week for allegedly selling heroine.

According to authorities, the suspects say they would sometimes use a child to exchange drugs in a DVD case for cash.

Investigators say the child did not know drugs were in the DVD cases.

The Janesville couple were busted when an informant allegedly bought Xanax and one-point-five grams of heroin from them.

The couple faces a charge of using a child to distribute drugs, among other drug-related charges.
