A monitoring device on the bumper of a vehicle could help in a moonshining case.
It was state Alcoholic Beverage Control Agents who put the device on a vehicle from the Farmers Exchange in Rocky Mount, hoping it would lead them to an illegal moonshine still.
Agents lost track of the signal ...on Tharp Creek Road, but it helped narrow down the vicinity.
Eventually A-B-C Agents found the still, and today the judge in the federal moonshine case ruled the government CAN use that evidence.
