SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Cleanup continued Thursday along a portion of the American River levee where police on Wednesday forced homeless campers to move out.

Sacramento police officers ordered the campers near N. 10th Street to evacuate on Wednesday morning, then assisted the 150 or so homeless people to pack up their belongings all day. One man was arrested for illegal camping after refusing to leave.

About 40 officers and park rangers were cleaning up the area on Thursday, throwing away whatever was left behind by the campers.

Eighty beds were made available for the campers Wednesday night, but only 30 were used, CBS13′s Koula Gianulias reports, so apparently several of those forced to move out found another place to camp out.
