The ACLU of Colorado has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a 77-year-old woman, claiming that her Montbello house was searched by Denver’s SWAT team who didn’t find any criminal activity, but damaged her sense of safety in her home, which was left in disarray.
The lawyers at ACLU of Colorado filed the suit against Denver Police Department Det. Gary Staab on Thursday morning.
According to the lawsuit, Ruby Johnson, 77, a retired U.S. Postal Service worker, suffered from a “terrifying hours-long” SWAT search in January 2022. The Denver Police Department’s SWAT team, dressed in body armor and carrying automatic weapons, searched her home of 40 years, but did not find any illegal activity. They left her home damaged, in disarray, and caused Johnson physical and emotional harm, it reads, and Staab violated her state constitutional rights to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures.
