MURFREESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say three people who allegedly made moonshine whiskey and methamphetamine are in Pike County jail pending their first court appearance.

The Texarkana Gazette (https://bit.ly/1Apl1WT ) reports that three suspects were taken into custody on Feb. 11 after a moonshine still was found under their kitchen sink.

Chief Deputy Sheriff David Shelby stopped the suspect’s vehicle for expired tags when he noticed that the suspects seemed nervous. A search warrant was then executed for an apartment where police say the three were caught in the process of fermenting corn.

Police dumped the corn mash out of fear that it would produce gas and create an explosion.

The three suspects will be charged Monday. Two of them are being held on $75,000 bond. The other is being held on $5,000 bond.
