Man arrested after 400-gallon moonshine still found at home

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a man after finding a 400-gallon moonshine still at a Sumter County home.

Multiple media outlets report 57-year-old Reginald Williams of Cuba, Alabama, was arrested Nov. 10. He is charged with five counts of possession of a still and one count of manufacturing moonshine.

In a statement, Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Senior Trooper Johnathan Appling says Williams’ arrest stems from an investigation in which State Bureau of Investigation agents located and seized a 400-gallon moonshine still that contained five different condensers at a Sumter County residence.

Agents also located 1200 gallons of mash, 356 gallons of moonshine, 1960 pounds of sugar and 500 pounds of rye.

Williams was booked into the Sumter County jail. It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.

The investigation is ongoing.
