FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT) – Forrest City Police say they have seized over 950 containers of alcohol, coolers, packaging materials and collected other evidence during an investigation on illegal alcohol sales.

According to police, members of the department executed a search warrant at 232 North Water Street in Forrest City; they have charged Tommy Neal,65, and Antonio Neal, 42, with sale of alcohol and operating a business without a license.

"Citizens in the neighborhood were complaining on this residence and the activity around it.  CID went to work on it, and as you can see, knocked it out of the ball park," says Police Chief Edward P. Reynolds. "Although the charges are misdemeanors, the raid seized approximately $1,000.00 in stored alcohol from the residence.  This house was operating directly across from Lincoln School property and that is something that cannot be tolerated."

Antonio Neal was taken into custody, and Tommy Neal was cited for the misdemeanor violation.

Antonio Neal was also charged with failure to appear out of St. Francis County District Court on a warrant with an outstanding balance of $3,475.
