Camper finds camera in Francis Marion Forest

A camper found a hidden camera in the Francis Marion National Forest which turned out to be part of a law enforcement investigation.
The camper called law enforcement agencies after he and his daughter found a camera hidden in the forest. The man took the camera home, due to the lack of any identification markings, and called authorities. However, the camera ended up being governmental property to monitor “illicit activities.”
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that a Forest Service spokesperson told them the camera is part of a law enforcement investigation, but they would not provide any details. The spokesperson did say any images of non-targeted people, or just campers, are not kept as long as they are not part of the investigation.
