Cops raid wrong house, leave ‘calling card’

Cops raid wrong house, leave ‘calling card’

AN investigation has been launched into claims that cheeky cops are said to have left a fridge-magnet calling card after smashing into the wrong house.

Officers hunting a criminal recalled to prison for breaching his release conditions broke into the home of a couple in Oldham.

The family came home to find a hole in their back door, police in the yard, and fridge magnets rearranged to spell "OLDHAM TASK FORCE CALLED".

Police bosses have launched an investigation.

Aaron West, his partner Leeanne Baker, and their two-year-old son Leighton had only moved into the rented house in Letham Street, Hathershaw, 11 days earlier.

Mr West, 20, said: "It’s pathetic and childish. I want a written apology.

"We came back from shopping to find the back door smashed in and on the kitchen work top.

"The police here didn’t tell us much, so I went to the station to ask why.

"But when I told the desk sergeant I didn’t know who they were looking for, they just weren’t interested.


"When I came home I noticed the fridge magnets had been rearranged and said: `OLDHAM TASK FORCE CALLED’.

"These are for children, they’re not for the police to leave a message they’ve raided your house.

I’m wondering what they would’ve done if there hadn’t been refridgerator magnets. Sidewalk chalk drawings?
