3 Arrested At W.V. Music Fest Remain Jailed

KINGWOOD, W.V. (AP) - Three people arrested during this summer's All Good Music Festival in Preston County remain behind bars.

Officials say more than 60 people were charged with felony counts during the music festival near Masontown. Two people that are each charged with delivery of a controlled substance remain in Tygart Valley Regional Jail. Another person that remains jailed is charged with attempted burglary.

Keeping them jails has cost more than $15,000 as the regional facility charges the counties where the arrests were made $48.80 per prisoner per day.

The Dominion Post reports that in addition those arrested and charged with felonies at the festival, about more than 400 misdemeanor citations were issued. Officials say the sheriff's department spent about $107,000 policing the festival.
