D.E.A. Raid: Woman Says Hit Wrong Home

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A terrifying ordeal for a Philadelphia woman, federal agents raided her home but she says they got the wrong house.

This happened on the 2200 block of Judson Street in North Philadelphia. Corinne Webb describes her morning as a wake up call that brought her to tears.

Webb, who suffers from asthma, says the agents not only broke up her front door, but they searched her home, overturned furniture and upset her whole family.

"They had lights in my face, guns, everything. I couldn't even see to come down the steps," Webb said.

Following the incident, agents showed her a picture of a man that she did not know.

After only living in the area for one year, the intrusion left Webb confused.

"They came here no warrant, no nothing, bust my door open, broke my bed, and told me nothing," Webb said.

The raid at Webbs' home appears to be in association with the takedown of the Leon Little drug Operation Tuesday.

Federal Agents say a $3 million dollar illegal enterprise obtained and distributed nearly 400,000 prescription pills such as oxycodone and Xanax. The drug raid netted 27 arrests across the area.

"The defendants charged today are drug dealers, just like street dealers pushing heroin and cocaine."

DEA Officials in charge of the early morning raids as well as other law enforcement agencies had no comment on the incident at Webb's home saying they were not able to discuss what happened during the street operations in North Philadelphia.

Just hours after the incident a work crew from the Philadelphia Housing Authority replaced the door that was broken up during the raid, but the new door did little to calm Webb's nerves and her anger.
