Subject: CAMP Update
Contact: Brenda Godsey
Case No#: 200905923
Released By: Brenda Godsey

Location: Willow Creek

CAMP personnel were in Humboldt County for one day this week, working with Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies and U.S Forest Service personnel. Yesterday CAMP was active off Forest Service Route 6 near Willow Creek. They eradicated 10,709 growing marijuana plants that ranged in height from six to eight feet. Evidence at nearby campsites confirmed the grow site was that of a drug trafficking organization. Deputies conservatively estimate the value of the marijuana to be more than $3 million.

The Campaign Against Marijuana Planting will continue operations in Humboldt County throughout the summer.
