Southern Indiana man arrested for possessing still

TELL CITY, Ind. - Police say a Facebook post of a southern Indiana man posing with what appeared to be a liquor still has led to his arrest.

State excise police say officers arrested 39-year-old Jeremy Thompson, of Tell City, on Thursday after obtaining a warrant to search his home in the Ohio River community. The agency says officers seized the still, along with containers containing liquor that the man said he had produced.

Thompson was not taken to jail.

Police say the investigation began after officers received a tip about the Facebook post.

Thompson faces misdemeanor charges including possession of unlicensed alcohol production equipment and selling alcohol without a permit.
