MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Alcohol Beverage Control Board officials say they destroyed an illegal moonshine still near Montgomery and authorities found more than 100 marijuana plants in a rural area of Clay County.

Control board spokesman Dean Argo said in a statement that agents found the moonshine still hidden in a shed behind an abandoned house in Hope Hull on Wednesday afternoon. Argo says agents were responding to an anonymous tip when they found the still.

Argo says a pilot with the state’s Department of Public Safety spotted marijuana plants growing near Lineville on Tuesday. Argo says 113 plants, which ranged from three to more than 13 feet tall have been destroyed.

No arrests have been made.
