Elk Grove police and federal drug agents raided two homes Wednesday, one on Maybeck Way and the other on Misty River Way.

Officer Christopher Trim with the Elk Grove Police Department says some neighbors were a little stunned to see the dramatic police action unfold. 

"Yeah, I’m sure they were. There were some neighbors outside and they saw things but they didn’t really expect something like this was going on." 

Earlier this month, authorities raided five homes in Elk Grove and Sacramento and made 4 arrests – all of the suspects are residents of the Bay Area. Trim says the cases are connected. 

"In this town this is probably one of the larger operations that we’ve discovered but we’re finding that this type of operation is not just centralized in Elk Grove it’s actually happening in Sacramento, in Natomas, in Folsom, it’s happening throughout the area."

He says the pot busts are the result of over two months of investigation and included tips from nearby residents.
