NEWPORT—State and local law enforcement officials allegedly raided an illegal moonshine operation in Cocke County on Thursday.

According to sources, TBI agents and members of the Cocke County Sheriff’s Office conducted the raid in the Carson Springs area.

When contacted Friday afternoon, Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes would neither confirm nor deny the raid. As well, supervisors in the U.S. Attorneys Office in Greeneville were out of the office on Friday and unavailable for comment.
