A SWAT team terrified a 77-year-old Denver grandmother at her home after a series of alleged blunders, including misleading “Find My” app information, placed stolen property at her addresss, according to a lawsuit the ACLU has filed on her behalf.

Ruby Johnson, who has lived in the house for 40 years, was wearing her bathrobe and bonnet on 4 January when she heard a bullhorn ordering anyone within the home to come outside, states the complaint, filed last week in Denver District Court against Denver Police Detective Gary Staab. Ms Johnson opened the door to the site of an armoured vehicle, police cars, officers in full military tactical gear and a German Shephard from the K-9 unit.
