Neenah Man Indicted on Drug Dealing and Firearm Charges

United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on February 5, 2019, a federal grand jury issued an indictment against Tou W. Vang, also known as “Meng Vang” (age: 38) of Neenah, Wisconsin.

The indictment alleges that Vang possessed methamphetamine and marijuana with the intent to distribute the controlled substances contrary to Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a), (b)(1)(A), and (b)(1)(D). Further, he is charged with possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 924(c)(1)(A). If convicted of the charges alleged, Vang faces a mandatory 15 year prison sentence and up to a lifetime of imprisonment.

Vang will be arraigned on February 14, 2019, in Green Bay federal court.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Appleton Police Department. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
