A Petersburg woman says police kicked in her door and ransacked her home looking for stolen goods, but had the wrong apartment.
Cathy Magana, who lives on Ivy Lane, said she and her family were asleep Tuesday morning when officers barged in.
"All of a sudden, we heard the door break down," said Magana. She said they told her they were looking for stolen electronics.
Magana told 8News officers pulled her, her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend out of bed and placed them in handcuffs before ransacking the home for nearly two hours.
"I told them them when they first pulled me out of bed, they have the wrong apartment," she said.
A warrant filed in Petersburg Circuit Court shows that police searched Magana's home, but also shows that no stolen items were taken or recovered.
Magana said that she was told that someone was using the internet with a stolen device inside her home. She says her internet is wireless, and anyone could have logged on to the IP address.
"Police had no reason to break down our door, and scare the crap out of us."
8News made several attempts to speak with Petersburg Police about the incident, but a spokesperson would only say it's part of an on-going investigation, and that the department will send a statement upon the conclusion.
