Wis. Women Accused Of Receiving Opium In The Mail

Two women accused of receiving opium through the mail have been charged in Manitowoc County. In a court appearance on Wednesday, Sheng Lee, 23, 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.

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

Police said 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.
