MILLSBORO, Del.- Agents with the Delaware Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement have arrested a Millsboro man accused of manufacturing and selling his own brand of alcoholic liquor in the lower Sussex County area. 

Agents said that 35-year-old Reese A. Carey was arrested on Jan. 5, while making an illegal sale of alcohol in the Delmar area. Sixteen quart jars and three pint jars of suspected illegal alcohol were seized from his vehicle. 

A search warrant was executed at Carey's home on Bethel Road in Millsboro and agents said they determined that he was purchasing large amounts of grain alcohol and mixing it with various ingredients and selling it to various individuals.  Several items used in the preparation of this alcoholic liquor mix were seized from his home, agents said. 

Carey faces several charges including selling alcohol without a license, illegal transportation of alcohol, attempted to evade or defeat tax and keeping alcohol in residence with the intent to sell. He was released on $8,000 unsecured bail.
