Little new info on pot busts
UPDATE: Listen to the interview here.
FBI spokesman Joseph Schadler spoke with KSLG’s John Matthews this morning to give an update on the Federal investigations into marijuana busts conducted across Humboldt County Tuesday.
A complete list of locations targeted in the raids will be released later today. Areas include Shelter Cove, Whitethorne, Phillipsville, Miranda, Arcata, and Redway.
Investigations will continue today. Once a search warrant is executed researches will remain at the site until they seize all items listed on the warrants, Schadler said.
The one person taken into custody yesterday was arrested for assaulting a federal officer.
Some people were home when officers arrived to serve warrants, Schadler said. In most cases they were interviewed but not arrested.
Schadler said he couldn’t give a lot of details because of on-going investigations.
He said he didn’t know how much the “Operation Southern Sweep” will cost. “I don’t crunch numbers,” Schadler said.
