Police and liquor officials seized 67 gallons of moonshine, 22 guns and a Kia Soul from the home of a man they say was working as a bootlegger. 

Winston Delano Terry, 73, faces felony charges after he was caught illegally selling homemade alcohol in Virginia and Tennesee, the  Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) said Thursday. 

Terry's home in Jonesville, Virginia, near the Tennessee border, was raided by state police and ABC special agents on Oct. 13. The raid followed a months-long investigation. 

“Our undercover operatives made numerous buys during the past several months, culminating in the enforcement activity," ABC Special Agent in Charge Steve Baffuto said in a statement.

A photo from the ABC shows dozens of mason jars full of liquid.

The ABC's chief operating officer said the charges against Terry help protect public safety.
