A Mississippi man has been arrested and charged with making moonshine – again.

WLBT-TV reports that Jimmie Alexander, 68, of Vaiden, was arrested Thursday morning by Mississippi Alcohol Beverage Control agents and deputies from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

ABC agents said they believed Alexander had likely been making moonshine in the still for decades. ABC agents said his work went undetected, the TV station reported, because he reportedly sold his $30 per gallon, homemade liquor out of the area, making it difficult to track.
