CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - A Tennessee man was arrested on charges of ferrying 72 quarts of moonshine and five gallons of homemade wine through a dry county in Kentucky.

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell said Bobby Crawford, 54, of Newcomb, Tenn., had a wide variety of fruit flavors for the hooch in the back of his van.

Harrell said a deputy stopped Crawford on Thursday for not wearing a seat belt.

When the deputy looked closer, Harrell said, he saw canning jars and plastic jugs covering the van's back floor.

Crawford is charged with possession of alcohol in a dry territory, illegal transport of alcohol in a dry territory, failure to wear seat belts and failure to maintain insurance. The jail had no record of an attorney.
