Hillbilly Busted: 929 Gallons Of Moonshine Found In His Shed

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Alcohol enforcement officers say they arrested an alleged moonshiner near North Wilkesboro, N.C., in one of the largest liquor seizures in recent memory.

Roger Lee Nance, 63, was charged Wednesday with possession of non-tax paid liquor, possession of the liquor for the purpose of selling, and possession of equipment and ingredients intended for the use in the manufacture of an alcoholic beverage." UPI

There may not be gold in them thar hills, but there`s plenty of moonshine to keep a horde of hillbillies merry for many a moon. Police found 929 gallons of moonshine under Nance`s shed.

What kind of a name is "Roger Lee Nance" for a moonshining hillbilly? Roger should change his name to Billy Bob Bowinger.

I thought all hillbillies had given up moonshine for crystal meth, but I guess there are still a few traditionalists around who love them some moonshine.

There`s not much to do in the mountains of North Carolina, the cops should have left Nance`s moonshine undisturbed. There`s going to be scores of hillbillies who will kick their dogs or their loved ones because they can`t get any moonshine.
