WILKESBORO, N.C. — State Alcohol Law Enforcement agents seized 929 gallons of moonshine Wednesday and arrested a Wilkesboro man, authorities said Friday.

Roger Lee Nance, of 1117 Shew Ridge Mission Road, was charged with possession of non-tax paid liquor, possession of non-tax-paid liquor for the purpose of selling, and possession of equipment and ingredients intended for the use in the manufacture of an alcoholic beverage.

“This is one of the biggest seizures of white liquor I’ve seen come out of the mountains in my career,” ALE Director John Ledford said in statement.

What’s this world coming to when a guy can’t keep 929 gallons of an illegal alcoholic beverage on his property? Who can blame this guy in times like these? We’re in a recession and people need to drown out their sorrows with strong, life-threatening alcohol. Now those damn NC cops stole that man’s livelihood. I thought this was America!
