A swat team has left a family homeless after demolishing a house to arrest a suspect on drug charges.
The aftermath of the raid looked more like the devastation caused by a tornado or earthquake, and no mention of the damage was made in police reports.
According to The Ithaca Journal, David M. Cady Jr, 36, had recently missed court dates relating to a DUI arrest, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On December 30th, at around 7pm, police arrived at Cady’s house to serve a warrant, but he refused to leave his home because he was afraid of going to jail. Cady’s wife, Melissa, and their two sons were also in the house at the time of the raid.
Police then pulled hundreds of officers from at least 18 different local police departments and staged a 3 day siege of the family’s home.
The police have also said that they had to handle the situation the way they did because Cady was a gun owner.
Cady eventually shot himself, not long after. His family remain homeless.
