The Oklahoma Highway Patrol dive team pulled about 200 pounds of trash out of Tenkiller Lake Tuesday.

For their final two-day training of the summer, the OHP Dive Team decided to do an evidence search scenario and combine it with a trash cleanup dive in Party Cove at Tenkiller Lake.

Most of the trash was beer cans and bottles, but divers also found several pairs of sunglasses and a Go-Pro.

OHP wants to remind boaters to take their trash with them when they leave the lake.
