DEA and the EPA raided a Fortuna business, Eel River Hydroponics, today. Details are sketchy at this point though there are reports of officers wearing bulletproof vests. There are also reports that a bottling plant on 7th street that was previously associated with Eel River Hydroponics was raided, too.
Below is a map of where the main business is located.
