It's been about 80 years since the U.S. ended prohibition. So this is definitely a crime you don't see every day . . . or every century.
--Last week, 23-year-old Daniel David Pawa of Lantana, Florida was arrested for SELLING MOONSHINE.
--Back in November, Daniel posted an ad on Craigslist with the headline, quote, "Moonshine?" An undercover agent from the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco called him and asked to buy the, quote, "strong stuff."
--They set up a sting on Daniel and, last week, he sold them 40 gallons of 180-proof moonshine for $150-a-gallon. Moonshine that's 180 proof is 90% alcohol. The legal limit for alcohol in Florida is 153 proof, or 76.5% alcohol.
--An ABT agent says, quote, "The danger in moonshine comes from the use of unregulated materials, which can lead to various threats to consumers' health."
--Daniel has been hit with several felony moonshine and illegal alcohol production charges. Two people he was working with were also arrested.
