Search Warrant Executed on Suspected Bootlegger

Deputies with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office executed a search warrant at a residence on County Road 3520 at approximately 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.  The search warrant concluded an undercover investigation into the selling of alcohol from the residence.  Deputies have made a total of 3 undercover buys of alcohol from the owners of the residence.  Deputies confiscated 56 cases of beer as well as a price list detailing the amounts of each brand of beer.  The owners of the residence will face charges of selling alcohol without a permit.  "This residence has been under surveillance after citizens alerted the Sheriff's Office to the alleged bootlegging.  We received information that the owners of the residence were selling large quantities of beer to minors, especially Hispanic minors."  A big "Thanks" to the citizens who provide us information on drugs and alcohol in Johnson County.
