Again, the authorities claim to have taken 10,000 plants which they value at 25 to 60 million. They also claim to have found machine guns.
Here’s the ER coverage which like the TS is pretty much limited to the FBI press statement.
The blogs are quiet this morning. Unfortunately, Hank Sims is on a well-deserved vacation so there’s no NCJ Blogthing activity to note. The Town Dandy is up online, but the information is already dated.
Last night KMUD aired the first interview of a sweep victim who contradicted some of the FBI claims and made them sound inaccurately grandiose.
So far no e-mails from direct witnesses of anything happening this morning. Cristina Bauss is looking for eye witness accounts of the busts for next week’s Independent. Contact her if you can help.
Addendum: I believe Ed Denson’s show is on tonight at 7:00 p.m., which will hopefully provide the first call-in comment opportunity since the raids began. Of course, there is also Thank Jah tomorrow morning.
Second addendum: According to Heraldo, KMUD is taking calls right now, until 9:30 or 10 depending on volume. One caller said that her neighbor was out fighting fires when his house was raided.
