[ARCHIVED] Registered Sex Offender charged with drug crimes.


Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: On Friday, June 21, 2019, members of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit with assistance from members of the Criminal Investigative Division, and Uniformed Patrol Deputies executed a narcotics search warrant at 3691 Hickory Highway west of Statesville.

Earlier this month, narcotics investigators received information in reference to Hester distributing “Crack” cocaine from his residence. Narcotics investigators were already familiar with Juwan Hester after conducting an undercover investigation in June of 2018 where a search warrant was executed at this same residence. Hester was arrested for selling “Crack” cocaine to undercover investigators as a result of this prior investigation.

Based on this new information, undercover investigators again began surveillance on the residence, and as in the prior investigation, they were able to purchase “Crack” cocaine from Hester which led them to obtain, and execute this search warrant.

As a result of this investigation, Hester was again arrested for Felony Maintaining a Dwelling, Vehicle or Place for Controlled Substances, and Felony Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon for a weapon located inside the residence during the search.

He was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center where Magistrate D. Sanders issued Hester a 20,000.00 dollars secured bond on these new charges.

Juwan Hester was out on an 80,000.00 dollars secured bond for the charges he was arrested for in 2018.
