    The Orange County Sheriff's Office said it has been conducting surveillance on the home for months following reports of illegal drug activity.

    In a statement released by Regina Hill on Sunday, she claimed to have no idea about what was going on at the home she owns.

    "The commissioner is both shocked and saddened by the events that occurred yesterday at the house she owns on Baywood Avenue. As this is news to her, she has no comments on the matter at this time. The commissioner asks that the media is respectful of her family, as she deals with matters that involve her son.  Although her son is an adult, like any mother or citizen, she is concerned."
