Wrong House Raid: Cops Destroy 90-Year-Old’s House, No Drugs Found

Who knows what “intelligence” the Riviera Beach Police Department received that led them to believe that this 90-year-old woman was involved in some illegal drug activity. But they promise it wasn’t the wrong address that led them to the wrong house. Just because they didn’t find any evidence after they destroyed her house doesn’t mean that the woman didn’t know about the drug activity that was going on. They’ve apparently agreed to replace her windows and doors, but for now they’ve got particle board covering the damages. I’m sure they’ve got her on the top of their list of things to do. CBS reported:

She’s called Riviera Beach home for 25 years, but back on December 18th around 1 p.m., the 90-year-old woman, who asked not to be identified, had some uninvited guests.

“I don’t know how the cops got in here. The noise woke me up when something said boom! Like a bomb or something,” said the 90-year old.

There was shattered glass, a busted door, and traces of a flash bang device.

Riviera Beach Police said after evidence of criminal activity, they got a search warrant.

“Cops standing over here talking about where’s the drugs? I said what? What drugs? Ain’t no drugs in here,” she said.

Police searched the home with drug sniffing dogs but came up empty-handed.

“I’ve never been arrested, never been in jail,” said the 90-year old.

Riviera Beach Police said the search warrant was executed at the correct address and while the resident may not have had any knowledge of drugs being sold from her home, it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

The department has since put up temporary repairs and has decided to pay for new windows and doors.

The resident is supposed to get a new door later this week – and new windows by February 28th.

She’s lucky she didn’t get shot. I’m sure if she had her cane, the police would’ve felt threatened by it and shot her dozens of times to protect themselves.
