Ala. man accused of producing moonshine arrested
JOPPA, Ala. (AP) — Sheriff's officials in northern Alabama say a man has been arrested for operating an illegal moonshine still out a shed near his house.
Morgan County Sheriff's Sgt. Chris Price tells WAAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1bXha7s ) Daniel England, of Joppa, was arrested Saturday night after police did a welfare check on a horse and discovered the moonshine still in his shed.
Authorities say England is charged with illegal possession of prohibited liquor and operating a moonshine still.
Investigators say they confiscated 20 gallons of the homemade moonshine and Price says it's illegal to produce any amount of untaxed, unregulated liquor.
Joppa is about 35 miles southeast of Decatur.
