72 Quarts of Moonshine Seized

In what sounds like a headline from 1951 instead of 2011, Whitley County Sheriff's deputies seized five gallons of homemade wine and 72 quarts of assorted flavors moonshine Thursday afternoon. Deputy Todd Shelley charged Bob Crawford, 54, of Newcomb, Tenn., with illegal possession of an alcoholic beverage for the purpose of resale.
