Moonshine bust in Suffolk

A continuing investigation yielded the arrest of an 84-year old woman and a 78-year old man for selling moonshine out of their home in Suffolk. The Virginia ABC believes the moonshine came from illegal distilleries in North Carolina. My first thought was that this article reminded me of the Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster movie "Tough Guys" about a couple of older gangsters who return to a life of crime. After a "weeks long investigation," ABC investigators found "three gallons of untaxed whiskey, known as moonshine."
