"Police served multiple search warrants at a storage locker in Sunnyvale, at three recreational vehicles in San Jose, and another in the 1600 block of Willowgate Drive."

But I thought all RV dwellers in MV were hard working and has just been evicted from high-priced rental units?

The article does not explain how they were identified. Did some of the schools have cameras?
