Jonesville man, 73, busted by ABC agents for moonshine and guns

A collaborative operation between alcohol beverage regulators in Tennessee and Virginia resulted in a Lee County man being arrested for possessing moonshine and more than 20 firearms.

Winston Delano Terry, 73, of Jonesville, will likely face several felony and misdemeanor indictments after agents executed a search warrant at his home in the 700 block of Flatwoods Road following a four-month investigation, Virginia ABC officials reported Thursday.

Jars of product adding up to 67 gallons of moonshine were seized along with 22 guns and one vehicle. Special Agent in Charge Steve Baffuto said information supplied by colleagues in Tennessee led investigators to Terry who Baffuto said made several deals with undercover operatives.

The agency plans to meet with the Lee County Commonwealth Attorney's office to bring criminal charges against Terry, the report said.
