Capt. Ricky Richards said deputies seized 700 gallons of mash, capable of making up to 600 gallons of moonshine; 20 gallons of finished moonshine; a 200-gallon cooking pot; and 20 bags of corn.
“At about $50-60 a gallon, that’s about a $35,000 total street value possible from these materials,” Richards said.
Richards and Maj. Kipp Coker said the still was found near a home in the 1000 block of Oriole Place by employees of R&J Farm.
“They called us, and we found a trail from the still to a house,” Richards said “we got a search warrant for the home. No one lives there.”
