FRANKFORT, KY (Tue 7 Jun 2016) - Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has shut down a moonshine still operation discovered on Spout Springs Road in Estill County.
Agents seized the moonshine still, 12 - one gallon containers of moonshine, a bag of empty jugs, a record book and a small amount of marijuana.
The investigation began last week after Kentucky State Police found the operational moonshine still while investigating a separate complaint at the residence located on the property.
A criminal summons will be obtained for Ronald Ballou. He will be charged with possession of an apparatus used for unlawful manufacture of alcoholic beverages, unlawful possession/trafficking of alcoholic beverage in dry territory and possession of marijuana. (Issuance of warrants, criminal summonses, and/or arrests are not findings of guilt. An individual charged by police or in a warrant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.)
Kentucky ABC was assisted by the Kentucky State Police Post No. 7, Estill County Sheriff's Office and the Estill County Fire Department.
