There’s been some mysterious activity in the skies over Mendocino County lately. Folks who live there want to know: Who are the armed men dropping out of helicopters to chop down their marijuana grows?

According to their promotional poster, the group works with law enforcement. That’s why Susan Schindler suspected the posse, when her medical marijuana garden was hit last month.
