Big Bear Lake, Ca, August 19, 2010, 10:00am - Yesterday afternoon a marijuana bust took place just below the Big Bear dam off of the Artic Circle. A program called CAMP, which stands for Campaign Against Marijuana Planting, had been monitoring the marijuana farm, and led the operation to eradicate the plants. According to Cindy Bachman, Public Information Officer for the San Bernardino County Sheriffs Department, 5300 plants were found and eradicated. The growers were not present when CAMP landed, and there was nothing left behind to identify the growers. One official from the DEA was present during the operation and CAMP’s Helicopters were used to fly in the officers, and extract the plants.
