Arrested were a 34-year-old male, a 44-year-old male, two 37-year-old males, a 39-year-old male, and a 46-year-old male.  They were later released to appear in court on December 12, 2021 on charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime for the Purpose of Trafficking. Also arrested was a 44-year-old female who was the subject of outstanding charges.
