Camp Zoe Owner Under Federal Indictment

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KMOX)  – The owner of a popular campground and concert venue is accused of using the site to cover up drug sales.

James Tebeau operates Camp Zoe near the Current River and Cape Girardeau.  The 300 acre site hosts annual music festivals in the spring, summer and fall.  The concerts draw as many as seven-thousand people.

In a federal indictment, investigators allege Tebeau used the events to cover up mass drug sales and drug use by patrons.

If convicted of the federal felony charges, he could spend up to twenty years in prison and have to hand over the campground and its assets to the government.

    Jimmy Tebeau is a good friend who has played Dead shows at my house. Jimmy may have tolerated more than he should have during concerts at Zoe as I probably did at my Grateful Dead parties, but marijuana use is hard to stop at any Dead event. People light up without asking whenever and wherever Dead music is playing. This is not necessarily some evil plan on the part of the property owner.
