Hearing set for McDowell, moonshine/marijuana suspect

Posted:

WELCH (WVVA) - A McDowell County woman charged in connection with cultivating marijuana and operating a moonshine still will have her preliminary hearing Sept. 8.

Melissa Lester is also charged with five counts of delivery of a controlled substance and one count of conspiracy. A preliminary hearing on those charges was waived Friday.

Lester and her father, Lewis Lester, were both charged in connection with the discovery of marijuana plants and a moonshine still on Lewis' property at the McDowell-Buchanan county line earlier this month.
