SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Three people are behind bars after a major alcohol bust in Sylvester on Friday evening.

Those three people are in custody after Sylvester police officers found a truckload of alcohol and some drugs.

Clara Feaster, the homeowner was arrested for selling and distributing alcohol without a license, among other charges.

WALB is working to get the identities of the other two people taken into custody.
