By

The Indiana State Excise Police seized a still and other items used to distill liquor from a home in Batesville on Monday.

Officers received a tip that a home in the 100 block of Hillenbrand Avenue was illegally making liquor. Excise officers served a search warrant to look for items related to the unlawful manufacturing of alcohol.

Police say they found several items including a whiskey barrel that contains whiskey. Other items seized included self-learning manuals and books on how to make whiskey.

Possession of a still or distilling apparatus is a Class C Misdemeanor. Other charges could follow.

No word on who police say is responsible.

Excise officers were assisted by the Batesville Police Department and Ripley County Prosecutor Ric Hertel.

Anyone with information on unlawful liquor manufacturing can provide an anonymous tip to the excise police at 812-523-8314
