UPDATE: Crimes of the State in Johnson County Kansas

The raid was the result of a program used by the sheriff's office in which the police spend hours staking out gardening centers, identifying shoppers who buy hydroponic gardening equipment, and then proceeding to conduct SWAT raids on the homes of the alleged perpetrators — who are assumed to be growing marijuana in their homes.

The victims of this particular raid, Bob and Addie Harte, sued in federal court.
