Search Warrant Executed Following Bootlegging Investigation in Laurel County

On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control executed a search warrant at American Patriots in Laurel County. The search uncovered over 100 bottles of distilled spirits, around 1,000 bottles of malt beverages, several gallons of moonshine, and at least six illegal gambling machines. Due to being located in a dry territory, American Patriots does not hold, nor could it hold, any type of alcohol beverage license from the Department, which regulates and licenses alcohol sales in the Commonwealth. The warrants and search is a result of a yearlong investigation into bootlegging activities associated with American Patriots.
