Two Charged After Traffic Stop

Two people were arrested early Sunday morning after Storm Lake Police stopped a vehicle in the 500 block of Seneca Street for a traffic violation.

Police allege the driver… 55-year-old Pao Xiong of Storm Lake… had a suspended driver’s license and he was wanted on a Sacramento, California warrant charging him with failure to appear in court for dangerous drugs. Xiong further charged with driving while suspended. He was held on a five-thousand dollar bond pending extradition to California.

During the traffic stop police were approached by a relative of Xiong… 33-year-old Webster Vang of Storm Lake. Police determined Vang was wanted on a Buena Vista County warrant charging him with possession of a controlled substance cocaine, a serious misdemeanor. Vang was jailed on a one-thousand dollar bond.
