ABC Agents Destroy Third Illegal Bullock County Still Since March

 

              Agents of the Alabama Alcohol Beverage Control Board late yesterday located and destroyed another illegal moonshine still near the Still Crossroads Community in Bullock County.  ABC Agents, assigned to the Moonshine Task Force, located the 24-barrel still hidden in a wooded area along Highway 14, just north of Still Crossroads. It is the second illegal moonshine operation found near the rural community this month and the third Bullock County still destroyed this year.

              Agents, watching local roadways and working leads, found the still, along with empty bags of sugar, grain and other paraphernalia. Each of the 24 barrels connected to the still were full of mash, but no finished moonshine was seized. Although, no arrests were made at this time, the investigation is continuing.

              The agents are part of the ABC Board’s Moonshine Task Force that investigates tips, develops leads, and are skilled in tracking and following trails that are often associated with this type of illegal operation.

              Anyone with any information about this Bullock County still or any other illegal activity is encouraged to call the ABC Board Hotline at 1-800-327-7341.
