DEA says rumors are false
Drug Enforcement Agency spokeswoman Casey McEnry told KMUD news reporter Cynthia Elkins that rumors of a crack-down on indoor marijuana grow operations in the Arcata/Eureka area are not true.
McEnry said the DEA routinely works in Mendocino and Humboldt counties, and will be conducting fly-over trainings next week in Northern Mendocino. The DEA will be working with the Mendo County Sheriffs, she said.
“It’s not some surge operation on the part of the DEA,” McEnry said. “It’s business as usual for us.”
McEnry said the trainings may bring a few more agents than usual to the area, and may cross the Humboldt County line.
