A federal search warrant from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was served to the Green Heart, a collective in Anderson, the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 12.

However, documents are all under court seal and no information can be provided as to why the business was searched, public information officer for the DEA, Casey Rettig said.

Owner Gina Munday was notified by her alarm company the morning of the event, thinking someone had broken in, she said. The DEA officers had broken into the store through the door.

The Mount Shasta location was also raided.

“They broke all the windows, vandalized the inside of the building and took all of the medicine,” Munday said. “We were so surprised.”

Anderson Police Department will not provide any information, Captain Robert Kirvin said.

When asked Thursday, Sept. 13, to comment on the raid, in which at least one Anderson police officer was involved, Anderson Police Chief Michael Johnson said, “We assisted the DEA with a search warrant for several hours on Wednesday at the Green Heart. This is part of an on-going investigation. The DEA agents did confiscate some items, but the agency is not disclosing at this time any descriptions of the items seized.”

There have been no arrests so far.
