Missouri State Parks acquires Camp Zoe
<![CDATA[CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri has acquired about 300 acres in south-central Missouri that had been forfeited after the owner was convicted of federal drug charges. The state Department of Conservation said Monday that Missouri State Parks acquired at auction the 330 acres of property in Shannon County that had been owned by James Tebeau. Tebeau was sentenced last year to 30 months in prison and ordered to forfeit the land, known as "Camp Zoe," after he was convicted of holding music festivals where drugs were sold. The department said Missouri State Parks has wanted to acquire the property for several years. Bill Bryan, director Missouri State Parks, called the acreage an "Ozark gem" because of its proximity to Current River State Park and Montauk State Park. Plans for development are being worked out.
