DEA raids woman`s Shorewood home after she shops at garden center

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A woman in the southwest suburbs says she woke up to find armed DEA agents pointing guns at her -- all because she shopped at a hydroponic garden center.

Angela Kirkling was driven out of her bed in Shorewood at gunpoint. The DEA had started investigating her because she had made a purchase at a hydroponics shop.

Agents say they thought she was growing pot indoors. Police had also been digging through her garbage and tracking her electrical bill.

They didn't find any marijuana plants but they did find small amounts of pot.

She was charged with a couple misdemeanors. Her attorney is trying to get those charges thrown out.
