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.
