ONE MAN IS CAUGHT
Six Stills and Equipment Destroyed
Wednesday; Go Back Next Day
And Get Another
This week has been a bad one for
Martin County moonshiners.
Federal Agents C. F. Alexander and
Deputies J. R. Manning and S. H.
Grimes went two miles beyond Bear
Grass Wednesday morning and found
two stills at one stand; one of about
200 gallons and the other 150 gallons
capacity. One of the stills was in
full blast, and though many signal
guns had been fired, the officers were
ney. enough to see the operators make
a hasty getaway. They brought the
•tills in apd destroyed 2,600 gallons
of beer, sereral kegs, axes, and shovels.
The officers then moved on and soon
found an 80-gallon copper still fully
equipped and in operation. About 3
gallons of liquor, 400 gallons of beer,
a number of kegs, buckets, and shovels
The next place the officers visited
they found about ,800 gallons of beer.
The still had been removed, but a
cooler and some other equipment found
at the site were destroyed. At the
next place visited, the officers found a
small 50-gallon copper still which was
cold. There were about 350 gallons of
beer found and destroyed at this place.
The officers found another plant not
*o far away with 400 gallons of beer.
The still had just been removed, and
a five-gallon keg of liquor found near
by was destroyed.
At the next place visited by the offi
cers they found an 80-gallon copper'
still, 100 gallons of beer, and 2• gal
lons of This still' was warm
when the officers reached it.
After the noon hour Alexander and
Ifanning decided they.had time to get
another, so they went up Reedy Swamp
■ mile above Bear Trap Mill, where
they soon found a good trail andj
quickly discovered two men operating
w the side of a deep branch. One of
the officers approached from one di
rection while the other closed in on
the other side. The two operators,
finding that the officers had closed in
on them, plunged into the creek. One
of them succeeded in reaching high
land ahead of the officers. Lonnie Bul
lock, however, could not handle him
self very well with hip boots on and
was captured and brought in. He was
required to put up a SSOO bond for his
appearance in the United States dis
trict court in Washington on April 16.
The officers found this plant to be
of the steam type and well equipped
with plenty of operating conveniences.
There were about 800 gallons of beer
and IS gallons of liquor destroyed at
this plant The officers found a new
process used at this plant. The li
quor was being colored by a process
of steamed red oak bark, giving it the
appearance of beautiful red liquor.
They thought it might be more health
ful than moat liquor, since the tannic
acid is usually considered good for
worm* in animals. *
Thursday morning the officers r|
turned to "the islands," where tbey
captured another copper still and
