Apex North Raid
Federal agents raided Apex North in Redway. Officials are being closed mouthed about the action. Humboldt Co. Sheriff’s spokesperson, Brenda Godsey explained that the local sheriffs were only present as representatives of the County but the investigation was under the Mendocino County Drug Task Force’s oversight. However, federal officers seemed to be in charge of the action.
The part owner of the business had last month been the subject of an investigation that resulted in the discovery of three underground marijuana grow rooms and 300 plants.
For more information check KMUD’s Friday evening news (see about a third of the way into the broadcast) KMUD was not allowed to stay on the property in Redway but Mendocino Sheriff Tom Allman told Cynthia Elkins that the US Drug Enforcement Agency issued the warrant. No other information has been forthcoming.
Calls to the Justice Dept. and the Mendocino County Drug Task Force have yet to yield any response.
Questions: Does anyone know whether computers were seized? Seems likely but no one has stated seeing that.
