Feds Wrongly Raid Home Of CBS Correspondent In Alameda

(CBS 5/KCBS) – Some new parents got an unexpected scare Wednesday morning when they awoke to a team of armed Federal Bureau of Investigation agents attempting to raid their home.

CBS News correspondent Priya David and her husband Alex Clemens were at their home with their newborn child on Lina Avenue when they heard a banging on the door just after 7 a.m.

“Our first thought was the neighborhood is on fire,” resident Alex Clemens said. “I see what turns out to be eight uniformed, armored, armed officers – four of which are pointing guns through the window at my face.”

Just as officers were about to cuff Clemens he warned them that they had the wrong guy.

“They yelled at me ‘Is anyone else in the house,’” Clemens recalled. “I did say ‘yes, my wife is a CBS News correspondent. She’s upstairs nursing our infant baby.’ That seemed to de-escalate things a little bit.”

”They said, ‘stand to the side,’ but then realized, I think, very quickly that they had the wrong home,” said David. “We told them that we thought they were looking for the people who lived here about three months ago, who had sold us the house and then moved across the street.”

The search warrant specifically lists marijuana, items associated with the cultivation and sale of the drug, along with firearms as the focus of the investigation.

David said the agents were very apologetic about the mistake.

”They were thankful, from our understanding, that we were able to tell them where the people they were looking for had gone,” said David.

Agents did enter the home across the street after getting a second search warrant, arresting one person in connection with the case.

  • This seems to be an almost daily occurence anymore, too often with tragic results. The phony war on drugs has been as effective as the war on poverty, but it is exactly what we have come to expect from our leaders, incompetence, corruption and a total lack of accountability.
