James City County Man Arrested on Alcohol-Related Charges

  • ABC agents with assistance from James City County Police execute a search warrant in a county home
  • Ronald Leroy Lassiter is charged with two felonies and 10 misdemeanors

Special Agents of the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), assisted by James City County Police, executed a search warrant today in the 100 block of Selby Lane in James City County. A county resident was taken into custody for alcohol-related charges.

Ronald Leroy Lassiter, 64, was charged with five misdemeanor counts of possession of untaxed alcoholic beverages (moonshine), five misdemeanor counts for the sale of alcoholic beverages without a license and two felony counts for the sale of alcoholic beverages while in the possession of a firearm.

ABC agents seized three gallons of untaxed alcohol (moonshine), more than $4,900 in U.S. currency, four firearms and various amounts of taxed alcoholic beverages (beer and spirits).

The year-long investigation by the ABC Hampton Regional Office and Special Operations Division was sparked by a complaint.

Lassiter is being held in Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail. Bond is set at $3,500.
