U.S. Forest Service and State Fish and Wildlife agents joined the effort Monday on federal land near the north fork of Digger Creek.  50-year-old Venustiano Gonzalez-Jauregi and a 17-year-old boy, both of Jalisco, Mexico, were reportedly found working in different areas of the garden and they were both arrested. 6-Thousand-769 growing plants were destroyed by the State Campaign Against Marijuana Planting, or "CAMP". 2-Thousand-500 Pounds of fertilizer, propane tanks, food, and general trash was removed. Officials also found a highly toxic insecticide called Carbofuran, which is illegal in the United States because it's so dangerous.
