4/12/2016 - Major Meth Dealer Out on Bond, Arrested Again

On April 11th,2016 the La Crosse Police Department investigative staff and Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant at 720 Oakland St. apartment #38 as part of a drug investigation.

During the search of the residence over $20,000.00 cash and 265 grams (over half a pound) of methamphetamine were seized along other items associated with drug dealing.  The estimated street value of the methamphetamine is $15,000.00. Kojoua Vu (Female 01-24-1990) and Douazhong Vu (Female 07-23-1991) were taken into custody and charged as part of this incident.

Kojoua Vu was charged with:

  1. Possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver
  2. Delivery of methamphetamine
  3. Warehousing drugs
  4. Felony bail jumping
  5. Possession of drug paraphernalia

Douazhong Vu was charged with:

  1. Possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver

Despite being taken into custody as part of a large drug conspiracy case last October and currently on bond for those offenses, Kojoua Vu continues to distribute large quantities of methamphetamine in the area.  On March 21st, 2016 Lt. Malott testified at Kojoua Vu’s preliminary hearing that other members of the conspiracy who were still in jail had encouraged her to ‘keep the business running’.

Also collected as evidence was a supply of synthetic urine.  Police speculate that this was used to help Kojoua circumvent court-ordered drug testing through Justice Support Services.
