Police: Moonshine distillery confiscated in Moss Point

Posted: Updated:
MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

What's being called an old fashioned moonshine distillery was discovered Friday at a home in Moss Point. And police tell us the man who reportedly owns that home is about to be charged with a felony. 

The pictures we received from Moss Point police show the stainless steel canister and the other equipment reportedly used to make illegal alcohol.

Moss Point's building official found the distillery Friday afternoon while doing home inspections.

Moss Point police say Amos Perkins wasn't home when authorities confiscated the moonshine equipment. Once he's located, we're told he'll be charged with possession of an illegal distillery.
