SYLVANIA, Ala. — Acting on a tip by a concerned citizen, the Sylvania Police Department searched a location and found 25 gallons of corn mash. Equipment was also seized that was used to manufacture moonshine.

Mash is a fermented concoction of corn, sugar, water, and yeast that is distilled to create moonshine. Distilled alcohol can be produced using different grains, but moonshine is typically made with a corn based mash.

According to Sylvania Police Chief Ross Greenwood, an investigation is underway and more details will be released at a later time.
