Most languages have an INSTR function.

VB is one of them:

Try the Contains method something like this.

Dim s = "the string has a L in it"
If s.Contains("L") Then
    '' it has an L
End If

or try use IndexOf function:
Dim Str As String = "Hello World"
        Dim isFound As Boolean = (Str.IndexOf("L") > 0)
        MessageBox.Show("isFound = " + isFound.ToString())
