SOPER - Authorities found an "extremely large" moonshine still Thursday while searching the property of a 69-year-old man whose son is suspected of burning a neighbor's camper trailer, Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park said.

The still, with an estimated capacity of more than 200 gallons, was distilling whiskey in a metal storage unit when deputies executed a search warrant about 6 a.m. at the property near Soper, a town about 12 miles west of Hugo, Park said.

Deputies also found an empty still, multiple barrels of alcohol and a gun on the property, authorities said.
