SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – More than 10 law enforcement officers from local and federal agencies served a search warrant Monday morning at 3384 Bruce Drive in South Lake Tahoe.

Officers could not say what they were searching for, but indicated the warrant had been issued after household waste found in a illegal dump site in the El Dorado National Forest near Camino, Calif. linked the address to the dumping. The materials dumped were associated with marijuana growing operations, said Gary Barnett, United States Forest Service patrol captain.

It is unknown if any arrests were made, said Cheva Heck, a Forest Service spokeswoman.

Officers from the Forest Service and South Lake El Dorado Narcotics Enforcement Team searched the house. The search warrant was the first the Forest Service had served in a couple of years, Heck said.
