Pueblo Family Sues Police Over Botched Drug Raid

January 14, 2005 Associated Press

PUEBLO, Colo -- A Pueblo family has filed suit in federal court, saying their rights were violated when police in black ski masks burst into their home at gunpoint without a warrant as part of a drug raid that resulted in no charges.

The family is seeking unspecified damages for what they say was an illegal search of their home in 2000. The officers, in court filings, call the episode as "unfortunate" and blamed it on "miscommunication" between law enforcement agencies.
