Women charged with receiving opium through mail


MANITOWOC (WKOW) -- Two women in Manitowoc County have been charged with receiving opium through the mail.

Both women appeared in court Wednesday. Twenty-three-year-old Sheng Lee of Two Rivers was issued a $20,000 personal recognizance bond, and bail for 62-year-old Soua Vang of St. Paul, Minn., was set at $1,000.

Police arrested the women Tuesday after drug-sniffing dogs detected drugs in a package marked for delivery to a Manitowoc home.

Police say Lee signed for the package and took it to her own home. Investigators executed a search warrant there and found the package, which contained about 11 pounds of twigs soaked with opium.

Online court records didn't list attorneys for either woman Thursday. Phone listings for the women could not be found.
