I can't help but think it's kind of rude that the feds, or whomever is responsible, brought to light an investigation involving the late Norm Vroman, past District Attorney of Mendocino County. Looks like they might have dropped the whole thing now, but it still makes the news.
Apparently they believed they had evidence of marijuana being grown of Vroman's property and suspected he might have some illegal weapons in his gun collection. You'd think, if they really felt he had illegal weapons, they'd go ahead and proceed with the search warrants regardless of his death.
I agree with Mendocino's past sheriff, quoted in the article, that it's too bad they didn't proceed with the searches so they could have cleared up any doubts. Bringing this story out now just dumps dirt on the guy.
You can't help but wonder if certain political operatives in Mendocino were behind this since Vroman is still on the ballot down there.
Interesting that this showed up in the Santa Rosa Press- Democrat and not the Ukiah Daily Journal, at least not yet.
