At high noon on Tuesday, January 8 2008 a highly trained forest crime scene unit arrived at OfficeMax in San Francisco to investigate. OfficeMax has been under suspicion for some time – ever since their paper products were traced to clearcut forests in the Grassy Narrows traditional territory. The Rainforest Action Network investigators arrived at OfficeMax and found that indeed, OfficeMax is selling paper products sourced from the Grassy Narrows traditional territory.

Once the stolen paper products were identified at OfficeMax and confirmed to be stolen from Grassy Narrows against the will of the community, investigators handed OfficeMax employees a Citation, and proceeded to the front of the store to rope off the crime scene. Crime Scene Investigators at OfficeMax Investigators also made sure to let passers-by know that their local OfficeMax location is selling paper products stolen from Indigenous territory.
