An article in the Times Hearld-Record OnLine says "Police dubbed the investigation “Operation: Bread, White and Blues,” saying the name came from the defendants’ use of “bread” for money, “white” for cocaine and the blue-colored “blueberry” pills.

“Many of the people buying these pills thought they were buying OxyContin,” Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler said, adding that this is the first fentanyl-trafficking ring of this scale in Orange County.

“Essentially, the firehouse was used at times by him to make sales and hold meetings”
