Ruth Hunter lives two doors down from a man that police were after. So naturally her apartment was raided in the middle of the night and she was hog tied while police sorted things out.
“I thought someone was breaking in to rob or kill me,” Hunter said.
Seconds after her front door flies open Hunter said she heard a voice yell “Police!”
“…Took my hands with a tie-thing and said ‘You’re under arrest’ and started asking questions,” she recalled. “The more I told them I didn’t know these people, the more he continued.”
Even though the police were at the wrong house, that did not stop them from shaking down this 75 year old grandmother.
According to WTVR, Hunter said she’s lived at the Village at Arbors apartment complex in Henrico for about six years, the whole time she’s kept to herself she says, only speaking when spoken to by others. She said she was shocked at the line of questioning from State Police, on the morning of April 10.
“Asked me if I ever stored drugs for anybody — I said how dare you insult my integrity.”
Hunter said that is when police started asking about her loved ones.
“He asked if maybe my granddaughter was involved. I sat up in my bed like how dare you try and bring my granddaughter into this stuff. She’s a law abiding citizen, works for a living, she don’t even like coming here,” Hunter said.
Hunter said that police left her apartment and went two doors down, while she was left handcuffed with a zip tie.
“I’m very irritated and angry, he never said I’m sorry, never apologized for having the wrong house…he said you got to get someone to fix that door.”
VA State Police cite an ongoing drug investigation and cannot comment any further.
It must be nice to be able to go around assaulting and shaking down old ladies and then claim to be involved in an “ongoing investigation” as to avoid answering for the atrocity.
