DEA Raids Wrong House, Gets Retired Military Translator Instead of Big, Bad, Dangerous Drug Dealer

Congratulations, DEA. You’re right on par with the brilliant people at the TSA.

A retired military translator who served in Iraq says he was treated like a criminal when agents from the DEA barreled into his Detroit home just after 2 a.m. Tuesday morning, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.

“As soon as I opened the door, somebody grabbed me and took me outside and put me on the grass,” Ramsey Tossa said. “The first thing I thought was they were terrorists who want to kill me because I served in Iraq.”

Tossa and his family were asleep at the time. He woke up when he heard loud banging on the door. He was taken outside, had lasers trained on him and saw agents dragging his wife and daughters who were “half naked.”

“I kept asking, what’s going on?” he said. “And they held my neck to the ground so I can’t talk.”

He began to have chest pains and paramedics eventually took him to a nearby hospital, reported the station.

According to the report, the DEA was executing a search warrant for Tossa’s landlord’s son, who apparently uses Tossa’s one-story house’s address for mailing.

The DEA told the station that it is taking Tossa’s complaint seriously.

“Before they raid any house, they should have more information,” Tossa said. “Not rumors.”

I see a substantial financial settlement in Mr. Tossa’s future.
