A Tennessee man was busted with dozens of jars containing bootleg alcohol after a tip led deputies to discover an illegal moonshine operation, authorities said Monday.
Investigators responded to the tip and arrived at the 200 block of Highridge Road in Johnson City, where they conducted a premises check and spoke with 36-year-old Jeremy Stines, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said.
Stines told deputies that the yard barn on the east end of the property had a still and gave his verbal consent to have the structure searched, according to the sheriff’s office.
