Washington County authorities have busted an alleged moonshine operation.

Officers yesterday uncovered a still in Waterford.  

Sheriff Larry Mincks says they acted on a tip.

The caller had reported a teenager purchased moonshine at a home and subsequently vomited blood after consuming the illegal liquor.  

Search warrants were served on Archie Curry, 74, and his son, Alex Curry, 49.

Mincks says officers seized more than 50 gallons of moonshine and various ingredients and equipment.

"Information obtained in this case is being forwarded to the Prosecutor's Office for possible presentation to a grand jury," said Mincks.
