LEXINGTON — Authorities are investigating after a stolen vehicle and a moonshine still were discovered Saturday near Lexington.
A little before 6 a.m. Saturday, Cleveland County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the intersection of 96th Street and York Road, where a 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was on fire.
Deputies followed track marks to a residence in the 14000 block of 96th and located a 1997 Ford Ranger pickup that was reported as stolen from Purcell.
In a shed near the pickup, investigators found what appeared to be a moonshine still containing a mash and liquid product.
Agents with the Alcohol Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission agreed the device found was a moonshine still. It is a felony to use a distilling process to produce spirits without a license.
Anyone with information about the still can call the sheriff's office at (405) 701-8847.
