Craigslist moonshine bust in Virginia

Craigslist Leads Virginia ABC Special Agents to Moonshine Bust:

Further proving that you can find just about any illegal service or substance on craigslist the ABC in Virginia arrested Lee Joseph Chraska, 26, and Joseph Allen Chraska, 23, both of Woodbridge, Virgina, for producing moonshine.

It seems that the ABC noticed an ad on craigslist advertising a still for sale which led to the arrests.

Moonshine, while less prevalent than it used to be, is still illegal to be produced without a proper permit and of course paying the taxes.

You may think this is pretty comical, and it sort of is, this shows that an unmoderated classifieds site is just a magnet for all kinds of illegal activity.

No word if the arresting officer only had one bullet that he kept in his shirt pocket.

On all ads are reviewed and moderated.

    BOB!!!!!!!!!!!! Where you been buddy?

    Hey, I live in ‘Shine country and some of it is good. But most of it isn’t and then there’s the stuff that can make you go blind.

    What the ABC should do is regulate the quality. lol

    I’ve been around. I read your tweets daily, (i’m whyteah), I just felt like I couldn’t let this one go by.

    Is the blind stuff still around? I thought most of that went away with prohibition. But then again, what do I know.

    It doesn’t happen often but you still get the occasional blinding. But moonshine has long given way to meth.
