The charges included possession of methamphetamine, oxycontin, vicodin, morphine, prescription medications without a prescription and drug paraphernalia.
The arrested suspects, all Petaluma residents, included Jenifer Falconer, 25; Micha Alex, 20; Asuncion Padilla, 61; Brenda Winthal, 44; Terri McNally, 38; and an unnamed female who is part of an ongoing investigation, Petaluma police said.
