"No known probable cause"? Not exactly.
The probable cause for this raid is quite well known: It is harassment, meant to promote fear. It is also employment for an underutilized SWAT team that needs to maintain a reason for its existence.

Some American police forces have learned all too well the lessons taught by National Socialism, and by the variously-named Russian State Security organizations.

I agree with Steve.  In some cases law enforcement has definitely taken on a Gestapo" bent. 

Heck, at one point, years ago, they could have raided me and most of my neighbors for the same thing.  We all started our tomato and squash sets indoors while waiting to get a head start on our gardens after the spring thaw.
Everyday I write the truth to who I am by what I do.
Life achieves its summit, when it does the uttermost what it was equipped to do.
It's always easier to shift the responsibility of one's existence, to lean on others rather than stand alone, but I refuse to place my destiny in another's hands.

I have started garden plants with florescent grow lights from seeds in my garage. I have a green house, so I have had a nagging feeling about a raid to check that out. :-\ I have been checking into Aqua-phonics. It is odd they can't produce any information as to the 'why' of the raid. I am surprised it was at 7:30 am. They usually come at 3 am & don't knock. They were lucky thay had no dog.

Fear.
Uncertainty.
Doubt.
The more you can create these the more you can oppress people.
