Chicago Cops Raid Elderly Couple's Home By Mistake

In the morning hours of Friday, about a dozen Chicago police officers, brandishing guns, raided a home near Midway Airport expecting to find large quantities of guns and drugs.  Instead they found that they had raided the home of 89 year old Andriji Jakymec and 84 year old Anna Jakymec.  Apparently, a confidential informant had told the police that they would find guns and drugs in the house and the police obtained a warrant.  According to their son, the only thing the police found was aspirin.  Anna complained that if the police had knocked on the door, or rang the doorbell, she would have left them in.  Instead, the police barged in and caused extensive damage to the home.  

The Chicago police have apologized to the Jakymec family.
