GRAYSON COUNTY (WSLS 10) - A community tip led to a moonshine bust in the Whitetop area of Grayson County.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office and the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Commission worked together on the investigation.

Fifty-four gallons of untaxed liquor and distilling equipment was found at the home of Vernon Miller on Dec. 9.

Miller admitted the liquor was untaxed and claimed it was purchased from a source he was not willing to reveal to authorities.

Investigators say they will be seeking a warrant for Miller in the coming weeks.
