Echols County - A bootleg liquor operation in South Georgia has been put out of commission.

Echols County Sheriff's Office discovered two moonshine stills Wednesday.

Sheriff Randy Courson says they located the stills on the Wolf Bay Hunting Club Property just off of Highway 84.

Together the stills produce about 130 gallons of liquor. They estimate they'd get $35.00 a gallon if sold.

They say the stills are so dangerous and dirty that the best way to get rid of them is to blow them up.

The GBI, DNR, and the Department of Revenue was brought in to rig the stills with explosives, and they were destroyed Thursday night.
