I was sleeping on my couch and woke up to 3 cops in my home. They were asking for my roommate, who was not home. The front door was open for ventilation and three of them just walked in.
My boyfriend says when he saw them on the porch he said they could not enter. They told him he was under arrest. The only way he resembles the man they were looking for is that he is a dude with glasses, he's several inches taller, 50 pounds heavier, 10 years younger than the guy they were looking for. In addition my boyfriend has a goatee and shaved head, this guy is clean shaven with hair.
They pointed tazers at myself, my boyfriend, and our dog who was only sniffing them. They said they didn't need a warrant because they were doing community caretaking. My boyfriend got the badge number of the first one who came into our house.
I called the non emergency number and was like, WTF? and they said they could come in my house because they had a warrant for a man and they saw a man on my couch. So I guess if they are looking for some dude, and you happen to be some dude, they can come in your house.
I called his girlfriend and she said he beat the shit out of her. My (other) roommates insist that she called a few minutes before looking for him. She sent me a text message saying he did nothing wrong and to tell him stay.
As I was typing, I just got a call from the guy they were looking for. He said he called the police long before they came over and they met him and took a statement from him and never arrested him.
Anywhoo personal drama aside I am fascinated by them just walking in my front door. I had no idea they could do this. When we said you don't have a warrant get out they said they didn't care about our "stuff" they just wanted the roommate. I don't care about my stuff either, I have a medical permit.
