The operation was carried out by the Region of Irish Hills Narcotics Office (RHINO), which investigates narcotics trafficking within the Michigan State Police. The state police's Monroe Post, MSP's K-9 unit, as well as its aviation unit and troopers from the Jackson Narcotics Enforcement Team (JNET) were part of the operation.

A search of the residence on Feb. 6, 2024 found the following:

The Michigan State Police Forensic Laboratory is working to identify other drugs that were discovered at the home.
