Dude, that's huge. That's a lot of charges for the 44 year old. With four search warrants, this was an extremely complicated search and bust...check this out:

“The Task Force could not have safely undertaken this operation without the help of our partners, to my knowledge, this was one of the most resource intensive and large scale warrant executions the Task Force has undertaken, and I believe it is a tribute to the teamwork and commitment of all the agencies involved that it went so smoothly,” - Lt.
