2/4/2016 - NROs, K-9 Team Arrest Suspected Meth Dealer

Yesterday, at 1:16PM, La Crosse Police Neighborhood Resource Officers (NROs) Tyler Pond and Dale Gerbig stopped a motor vehicle driven by Kong Vang near 11th and Badger Streets. The traffic stop was based on their knowledge that Vang (DOB 9/9/1989) had an active warrant and did not possess a valid driver license.

The NROs requested the on-duty K-9 team of Officer Tony LeQue and K-9 Ralph. During the K-9 deployment, Ralph alerted on Vang’s vehicle. The subsequent search resulted in over $5,800 cash and 97.4 grams of methamphetamine being seized. The estimated street value of the seized drugs is between $9,500-$10,000.

Kong Vang of 816 5th Avenue South, La Crosse, was charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine, Operating While Revoked, Probation Violation, and a warrant. Vang will make his initial court appearance at 1:30PM today.
