Collier County sheriff's Deputy Carmine Marceno unloads an all-terrain vehicle under the supervision of Cpl. Jerry Gallagher on Sunday afternoon before setting out on an operation to stop ATV riders from trespassing on the Railhead Scrub Preserve on the Lee/Collier County border. Trespassers on ATVs have eroded the environmental integrity of the 80-acre piece of land, home to roughly 170 gopher tortoises that are listed as a 'species of concern' by the state of Florida.
