ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque law enforcement officials are preparing to assist with issues that come with pinon picking season.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2nzUjtx ) that the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office is telling East Mountain residents to prepare for the season. Deputies say they are ready to assist with issues such as trespassing.

In a letter to residents, East Area Commander Capt. Joshua Campos said his department is aware that the warming weather means pinon pickers are coming. He said deputies have been directed to conduct frequent patrols of affected areas.

Campos reminded residents that state law requires “no trespassing” signs to be posted for law enforcement to take action.

Pickers are reminded to only harvest on public property and Forest Service land.
