Operation Free Shelly and Fish Sticks, commonly known as the Ponderosan Scientology raid, was a raid by the Ground Forces of the National Liberation Army, the military of Ponderosa Hills, on a compound of the Church of Spiritual Technology, a puppet organization of the Church of Scientology, located in Tuolumne City, a Ponderosan town.
In 1988, 18768 First Avenue was purchased by two individuals, William and Donna Daniels. They handed the property over to Norman Starkey that same year, who in turn gave the property to the Church of Spiritual Technology in 1993, with construction beginning in 1997. The property is now known as Lady Washington Mine.
After finding out that the Church of Spiritual Technology owned land near his house, Leon Montan decided that he would order a raid said land on the 18 September 2020. Due to the proximity of the compound to Leon Montan's house (about 8 kilometres), it was decided that the National Liberation Army would raid the compound. The raid was scheduled to begin at approximately 4:00 PM UTC, with plans of the raid being completed at 5:00 PM UTC, 18 September.
At 09:10 local time, an anonymous Ponderosan soldier, who was likely Leon Montan left Arastraville on bicycle, before reaching a local gasoline station to purchase a bag of candy and a large cup of Sierra Mist. The soldier reached the compound at about 10:30, and spent about 5 minutes there. They said "Oi, hello, I am L. Ron Hubbard, uh, if you could let me in, that would be splendid. Thank you very much." into the compound's intercom system, before leaving to wait for a rendezvous at the local park of Tuolumne City and arriving back in Arastraville at around 11:47 local time.
