Oops. Wrong Grays Harbor home hit in drug raid
The Associated Press
ABERDEEN, Grays Harbor Couny — 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.
