It’s not clear how many people were arrested.

  1. It may not have been the best plan to locate near the elementary school. They were under observation by the DEA, local law enforcement, the HOA, and most of the neighbors. The mothers were going crazy – of course. It is amazing they were able to operate as long as they did. Not the the smartest idea to locate 500 ft from an elementary. I’m just saying.
