Comments Off on Brown County Methamphetamine suspects include mother, Lor Vang, 39, of Minnesota, and 5-month pregnant daughter, Va Xiong, and Xiong’s boyfriend, Poan Vang

 

Investigators say a mother, her pregnant daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend hid meth in children’s socks before trying to sell the drug to an undercover agent.

The three were arrested in last week’s meth bust in Brown County, which investigators call one of the largest meth busts the county Drug Task Force has dealt with.

Lor Vang, 39, of Minnesota, faces three meth-related charges along with her pregnant daughter, Va Xiong, and Xiong’s boyfriend, Poan Vang.

Court records show Va Xiong is five months pregnant. Police say the three were caught selling drugs to an undercover informant, leading police to thousands of dollars of meth.

The criminal complaint says they were transporting the meth from Minnesota to Green Bay, concealing some of it in children’s socks.

Court documents also claim Va Xiong and Lor Vang had lost thousands of dollars at Wisconsin casinos and were arguing about a debt they owe suppliers in Minnesota.

According to court documents, they have been selling meth in the Green Bay area for more than a year.

It’s part of a concerning trend in Brown County.

The Drug Task Force has seen a large increase in seized meth in the past few years. In 2013 it seized 41 grams. In 2014, it seized 237 grams. In Thursday’s bust, 120 grams of the drug was found — more than half of what was seized in all of 2014.

All three suspects are being held in the Brown County Jail in lieu of cash bonds up to $30,000, and are expected to return to court next month.
