Traffic Stop Leads to Moonshine Bust in Unicoi County

By Yasmeen Elayan

A South Carolina man is only facing a citation after the Sheriff of Unicoi County allegedly discovered 29 cases of moonshine in his car.
This is Unicoi County's biggest bust ever made during a traffic stop.

The stop happened early Sunday morning, and Sheriff Kent Harris pulled over a suspected DUI driver, and that's when he made this suprising discovery.

The driver-- Arvin Guffey of South Carolina-- told investigators he has driven to the Tri-Cities "several" times to pick up his illegal alcohol.
Under state law, receiving and transporting untaxed alcoholic beverages is just a misdemeanor.
Guffey was handed a citation and sent home...he'll appear in court in Cctober.
