CHARLOTTE — Authorities have charged a North Carolina woman with selling moonshine out of her day care center.

The Charlotte Observer reports Tuesday that North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement arrested 57-year-old Gwendolyn Brown-Johnson last week at Parkview Community Center in Charlotte.

Agents say children were in the day care center when they sent in an undercover agent to buy two gallons of moonshine.

Brown-Johnson told the paper she was set up by a neighbor. She says she was just holding a package for a man in exchange for $80 and didn’t even know what was in it.

Agents also arrested 82-year-old Ervin Preston Finger and charged him with making the moonshine. Authorities seized more than 80 gallons of moonshine from Finger.
