On April 11th, a park maintenance employee found what appeared to be four kitchen bags containing marijuana alongside Kelso-Cima road within the park. A protection ranger responded and found that the bags did contain marijuana – a total of 21.05 pounds. During processing of the contraband, numerous items related to cultivation were found. The county sheriff’s office was contacted. It appears possible that, due to interdiction patrols along the highway, the marijuana was thrown out of a vehicle inside park boundaries to avoid discovery by the sheriff’s interdiction team. It is unknown at this time if the offender is a locale cultivator or was passing through the park. A joint investigation is underway.
