The school day started with a crush of cops on the campuses of three Temecula Valley high schools.
In the end, 20 juvenile students were in handcuffs, and two adult students were headed to jail cells.
A long time undercover operation from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department focused on a variety of drugs.
