SALINA, Kansas (AP) – Authorities have found two batches of homemade alcohol in the kitchen of the Saline County Jail.

The Salina Journal reports the alcohol was found this week.

Saline County Sheriff’s Capt. Brent Melander says officials found a dispenser filled with about two gallons of clear, homemade liquor during an inspection Monday.

And on Tuesday, jail officials found a mustard jar of homemade wine inside a tea dispenser. Crushed tomatoes were still fermenting inside the jar with a rubber glove attached to the top of the jar to help the fermentation process.

Melander says charges aren’t likely, but the inmate suspected of making the liquor has lost some privileges.
