Over 970 liters of bootleg alcohol seized in Turkey
Suspect held for producing counterfeit alcohol in Izmir’s Kinik district

IZMIR, Turkey (AA) - At least 972 liters of bootleg alcohol was seized and a suspect held Friday by gendarmerie forces in western Turkey, according to a security source.

Provincial security forces in Izmir’s Kinik district found out that a person was producing bootleg alcohol and selling it in the market, said the source who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

In an operation, the forces raided the suspect’s place and seized counterfeit alcohol, a distiller, and various materials used in alcohol production, the source added.

Bootleg alcohol is made using low-cost methyl alcohol instead of ethyl alcohol, which can cause serious harm and even death.
