State troopers find gallons of moonshine during traffic stop

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C. — It may look like gallons upon gallons of water, but state troopers in North Carolina said the liquid inside the gallon jugs packed a bit more punch.

Law enforcement officials said they stopped a driver for speeding.

But when they looked inside the vehicle, troopers said they found 20 gallons of what they believe is moonshine. Troopers said they also found a gun.

Troopers handed over the case to the state’s Alcohol Law Enforcement division or ALE.
