Dillsboro man arrested over "moonshine still" Craigslist ad
A Dillsboro man faces charges after posting a "moonshine still" for sale on Craigslist.
Excise officers arrested Curtis A. McNutt, Jr., 30, of Dillsboro. He faces a preliminary charge of possession of a still or distilling apparatus for the manufacture of liquor. That's a misdemeanor.
Police got an anonymous tip about the Craigslist ad, which offered the still for $150. The Feb. 2 Craigslist post listed a "moonshine still" for sale, along with a five-gallon bucket, 20 liter pot, copper wiring, air locks and a tester.
It's against the law in Indiana for someone to own, have in his possession or under their control, a still or distilling apparatus for the manufacture of liquor.
