Surry County Sheriff Reports


DOBSON — A woman awaiting trial for alleged crimes resulting from a drug bust was picked Friday for two other counts.

Leilani Hope Jeffcoat, 28, of Mount Airy, was served an order for arrest Friday for two counts of failure to appear in court earlier that day to face charges of driving while license revoked (not impaired) and driving with no insurance. She was given a $1,000 secured bond and Jan. 25 court date.

Also on that date, she faces charges of possession of stolen goods, fictitious/altered registration or plate, and failure to stop for an officer’s flashing lights.

Last December, a criminal investigation joined together the Surry County Sheriff’s Office, Mount Airy Police Department, Twin County Drug Task Force from Virginia, and the Patrick County (Va.) Sheriff’s Office.

Officers raided a house on East Pine Street in Flat Rock. Jeffcoat was listed as living in the residence along with Grandy Jay Nester and Mandy Marie Nester.

The sheriff’s office said it recovered stolen goods from the location including two cars and two pistols; officers also found 32 grams of meth.

After an initial appearance in May (and a $176,000 secured bond), Jeffcoat now has a court appearance on Jan. 22 for the following counts: possession of stolen goods, felony possession of a schedule II drug, maintaining a drug dwelling/vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana paraphernalia, and trafficking in meth.
