Webster County Couple Suspected of Brewing Moonshine, Growing Marijuana

A married couple from Webster County is wanted by authorities after they say marijuana plants and suspected moonshine was found on their property.

It all started when a deputy with the Webster County Sheriff’s Office went to serve a civil paper at the home of 60-year-old Dale Boudreaux and his wife 59-year-old Julie Boudreaux in Slaughters, Kentucky.

The deputy said that while he was there, he saw what looked like several marijuana plants in plain view in the Boudreauxs’ back yard. A search warrant was obtained and the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force was contacted to assist.

After the search warrant was obtained, the task force says detectives forced their way into the home and found 11 marijuana plants growing outside and another 10 plants growing inside the garage.

They say they also found almost 30 pounds of processed marijuana and digital scales at the home, along with other items like a vacuum sealing machine, packaging material, potting bags, and other supplies.

Additionally, the task force says detectives found what appeared to be a small whiskey manufacturing still along with 11 sealed quart jars believed to contain moonshine.

Finally, the task force says seven guns were found in the home along with over 2,000 rounds of assorted ammo.

The sheriff’s office was told that Dale and his wife Julie were currently in the Dallas, Texas area, but that they were on their way home, though investigators have yet to make contact with them.

Both Dale and Julie are currently facing charges of Cultivating Marijuana, Trafficking Marijuana, Apparatus for Manufacturing Alcohol, and Presence of Alcoholic Beverage for Sale.

The task force says the investigation remains ongoing and that charges and arrests are forthcoming.

Anyone with information on the Dale Boudreaux and JulieBoudreaux is being asked to contact the Webster County Sheriff’s Office at 270-639-5067, or the Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force Office at 270-754-2323.
