All warrants served
Federal agents have “obtained control of all locations” targeted by the warrants, he said.
At least one person was taken into custody but that person was not directly involved.
Agents are not here to undermine the will of the voters when it comes to 215, Schadler said. He repeated that agents are “not chasing down pot dispensaries” and that a single group of people are targeted. KMUD reporter Cynthia Elkins noted that busts took place all over Humboldt County and asked Schadler if they were “all tied together.”
“Absolutely,” he said.
Schadler said Tuesday’s actions were just one step in the investigation. He said there are “450 some odd folks up here doing the investigation,” but no charges have been filed. That will come “later down the line,” he said.
A local hotel clerk said agents are booked in their rooms thru Friday, according to KMUD.
