PITTSBURGH, PA — A grandmother says she feels violated and compelled to relocate after a SWAT team broke down her door, shattered her window, and invaded her personal space looking for a person she had never heard of.
The botched raid happened to Carla Glover, 49, while she was away from home. Returning from a long weekend, she found her house in ruin. Her window was busted out and glass was strewn across the living room, embedded in the carpet, and stuck in her couch. Her front door had been breached and knocked off of its hinges.
“Furniture [was] all over the lawn — tossed all crazy,” Glover described the chaotic scene of the March 29, 2013, raid.
Glover says that she lives with her 2 grandchildren and they easily could have been home during the aggressive no-knock raid.
