FBI Raids Wrong Apartment

Talk about a rude awakening. Early last Thursday morning, a woman in Fitchburg, Mass., discovered that the FBI was sawing through her front door with a chainsaw. Judy Sanchez told local reporters that a team of FBI agents had swarmed her apartment building, broke down her door, and held her at gunpoint for at least 30 minutes while her 3-year-old daughter cried in the background—until they realized they were at the wrong apartment. Police had intended to saw down the door of another apartment on the same floor as part of a drug and weapons raid tied to a gang in the city. The FBI has apologized to Sanchez and is paying for her damaged door.
