Eight craftsmen were arrested when police took action at campsites in Bergen and Forde. Seven were deported after the arrest.

One has been charged with tax fraud of over half a million.
Twelve police officers participated in the operation Tuesday, according to newspaper Bergens Tidende.
Police believe the craftsmen have been involved in illegal business dealings, primarily stonelaying. The seven deported were sent to Poland, Romania, and Britain.
The eighth man is a British citizen in his 20s. He was placed under police custody Thursday. He is being charged with severe illegal business practices and gross tax fraud.
