More than two dozen people were taken into police custody this week in an investigation into several mannequins left in parks and several other San Bernardino County, CA, locations as an apparent threat against law enforcement officers, authorities said Thursday, reports KCBS.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies responded to calls of seven mannequins hanging in various locations in the Crestline and Cedarpines Park communities on Feb. 18, according to Sheriff's spokesman Gil Flores.

The mannequins had "bulls-eye" targets painted on them along with names of current and former deputies as well as a San Bernardino County probation officer, Flores said.

Investigators focused on homes in the Crestline and Valley of Enchantment communities which Flores says were believed to be linked to the mannequins.

A total of 27 people were taken into custody during the investigation on charges ranging from "various drug-related crimes" to assault on a peace officer, according to Flores.

"During the investigation Twin Peaks deputies arrested anyone with active warrants or who were involved in new criminal activity," Flores said.

If you're going to declare war on the police, you better be prepared for the consequences.
