Couple sues Ohio police after officers raid house




ORWELL, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio couple has sued police after officers raided their home only to say later that they had the wrong suspect.

The lawsuit says officers from the Orwell police department along with county sheriff deputies illegally raided the home two years ago and caused injury, property damage and lasting trauma.

Authorities suspected that the woman living at the house was involved in an armed robbery but later said they had the wrong person.

The Star-Beacon (http://bit.ly/2gaXIOG ) in Ashtabula (ash-tuh-BYOO'-luh) reports the woman says she was injured in the raid and that the couple's children remain traumatized.
