Turkish security forces confiscated more than 1.1 tons of bootleg alcohol in the northwestern Tekirdag province, sources said Thursday.
Gendarmerie teams raided a residence in the Marmaraereglisi district of Tekirdag and seized 1,150 liters of the alcohol and a distillation system.
One person was arrested in the operation.
Bootleg alcohol is made by using low-cost methyl alcohol instead of ethyl alcohol, which can cause serious health issues and in some cases, even death.
