ABERDEEN, WASHINGTON — Federal agents and officers broke down the door on the wrong home Wednesday during a series of drug raids.
The resident told KBKW she was taking a shower when armed agents broke in and forced her outside in a bath robe. She later found out the search warrant had a different address than her home, where she lives with her 2-year-old daughter and mother. Her broken door was replaced by Wednesday evening.
Drug Enforcement Administration spokeswoman Jodie Underwood says the raid was part of an operation with multiple agencies serving search warrants in Western Washington cities.
KBKW reports the raids apparently targeted marijuana growing operations.
I have a hard time believing that it was a mistake. These raids are choreographed for at least a week. They know exactly what addresses they’re going to, which houses they are, what they look like, the people inside, etc. I raise a suspicious brow to such a brazen mistake. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but I say that the cost of the front door was worth it just to have a look around, don’t you think? Yeah…
