Ohio defendant called about drug money from jail

Legal News Updates Posted on

A newly released document in a $3 million pot shipping scheme says a California woman placed several calls to check on proceeds from the scheme even after she was jailed.

The updated criminal complaint by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent released Thursday says Lisette Lee made 22 calls from Franklin County Jail in Columbus after she was arrested last June.

Most of the calls were to fellow defendant Christopher Cash, who repeatedly warned Lee to be careful what she talked about because the calls were being recorded.

The DEA complaint says Lee asked several times about paperwork, a term the DEA says is a common expression for drug proceeds.

Lee and Cash have both pleaded guilty to a scheme to fly thousands of pounds of marijuana to Ohio in suitcases.
