How to Become a Bounty Hunter



ATF Badge, Gun Emerge from Drought-Dry Dam in California After 22 Years

By Steve Neavling

A fisherman’s catch in a drought-dry dam at Castaic Lake in California was quite the surprise.

Instead of pulling out a fish, the Castaic man reeled in a bag containing a gun and badge issued to an ATF agent, CBSLA.com reports.

The water line has receded 151 feet, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

(Correction: An earlier version of the story mistakenly said the badge was lost by an FBI agent. It was an ATF agent)

Turns out, the backpack was lost by an unidentified ATF agent who was enjoying a day at the lake in 1992 when the bag fell into the water.

“As I opened it up a gun fell out,” the fisherman said. “I opened the wallet and there was a badge. I knew that I better go find the sheriff’s and give it to them.”
