ST. LOUIS (AP) — Federal prosecutors in St. Louis say a 44-year-old southeast Missouri man has been indicted on drug charges involving a campground where he organized music festivals.
The U.S. attorney's office said Thursday that James Tebeau of Cape Girardeau, has been charged with one felony count of operating premises for the facilitation of illegal drug use. The office also said it has filed a civil complaint seeking civil penalties and the forfeiture of money derived from the campground's operation.
Prosecutors say Tebeau operated the 300-acre campground, Camp Zoe, and held music festivals there. He's accused of managing the concerts and campground to facilitate the distribution and use of drugs.
Online court records did not list a lawyer for Tebeau.
