It has been two weeks since 450 law enforcement officials raided Southern Humboldt County in what is being called Operation Southern Sweep, and no charges have been filed to date. During the raid, agents served 29 warrants throughout Humboldt County, and they say their operation is focused on a single group of people. The FBI says they seized about 16,000 marijuana plants during the raid, along with guns and more than 150,000 dollars in cash. Since Operation Southern Sweep took place, the U.S. Attorney’s office has filed claims indicating they intend to seek forfeiture of several properties, including 2,000 acres that spans Humboldt and Mendocino Counties and is known locally as Budaville. Joseph Schadler is a special agent with the FBI in San Francisco. I asked him if he has any idea if or when charges will be filed in the case.
