CHATHAM, Va. (AP) -- State alcohol regulators say they have arrested a Pittsylvania County man after they seized 339 gallons of moonshine from his home.

Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control agents and Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office deputies said they also found 18 weapons and cash during the raid Monday at the home of Ronald Way Bray.

The ABC's special agent in charge, Kyle Blanks, said undercover operatives purchased moonshine from the 63-year-old Bray in the months leading to the bust.

The Register & Bee ( ) reports that charges are being sought against Bray, including selling alcohol without a license.

A telephone listing could not be found for Bray.
