Copperopolis, CA...On 05-26-2016 members of the Calaveras Narcotics Enforcement Unit eradicated 10,800 marijuana plant seedlings from a rural private property on Rock Creek Road in Copperopolis. Sheriff’s Investigators received a tip that a clandestine water line was found running into a pond on the property. The unknown suspects had attempted to conceal this water line by burying it and covering the line with dirt, rocks, and grass. Suspecting possible illegal marijuana cultivation, investigators checked the property this morning at the request of the owner. The investigators located a campsite hidden in the brush, along with groceries that had been recently brought into the campsite. The water line led from the pond to a series of seed beds containing marijuana seedlings.

Copperopolis, CA...The Annual Hot Copper Car Show put on quite a show even in the rain. The numbers of cars were down as many couldn't risk potential damage from the weather. We were told that some of paint jobs on high end rods and customs can run as high as $50,000 so some did stay safely tucked in their garages. It was a great show none the less with beautiful pieces of rolling art. Best of show was the worlds fastest motorhome. It is a 1955 Chevy School bus that was converted for more recreational pursuits. When you absolutely have to be first to the campground this is your vehicle.
