HORN LAKE, Miss. An unidentified elderly Horn Lake couple were hospitalized Thursday after police burst into their home thinking it housed a methamphetamine laboratory.
The incident occurred Wednesday about 4 a.m., said police Capt. Shannon Beshears. Beshears said it was the right address but the wrong house.
Beshears said a heavily armed Tactical Apprehension Containment Team stormed the house.
"We had good information from a reliable source that had been backed up by a purchase of narcotics linked to the address. However, when we arrived at the designated address, there were two houses on the lot. We hit the larger of the two houses.
"It was the wrong house," Beshears said. "The house was totally dark and the TACT members went through to the bedroom looking for the suspects."
A man and a woman both in their 80s were injured as TACT team members secured the house although no drugs were found. There were children in the house also, but they were not awakened, Beshears said.

I can see this going no where so when your kids end up in a crack house or held hostage don't call the police, they might hurt your cat, go and get them yourselves. Then be prepared to spend your nest egg on lawyers.
When you people learn abut about how entries are done then we'll talk. Who do you think taught the military to do entries in urban warfare thay are now doing in Middle East. The police.
Will do. Those pesky cats have got to pay!...(applying camouflage makeup)
I've noticed that old folks do not recover very well after breaking a bone. I hope these folks did not sustain broken bones, since these initial reports are sometimes inaccurate.
Why did these old folks resist the cops?
Or were the cops out of control when they entered the home in a dangerous dynamic entry?
Because they are meth-crazed criminals?
And if you can't do it any better than you described above, then it's a good thing you quit, Bud.
LOL. For extra fun, you could dress up in all black like a ninja, and spew profanities at granny while slamming her to the ground.
Guess what, "big Johnson" (your brag reported to admin moderator btw) the public are the ones who ultimately get to choose what kind of policing they get. If the public want something that would make policing the next worst job to being a gardener, rather than the next better, but less innocents get their ribs bashed in, well the public should get it. That's democracy. You don't have hotline to God.
The War on [some] Drug plus dynamic entries, a dangerous combination for all involved.
IMHO, getting some weed will never be worth the life of a citizen or police officer.
Why don't you save yourself some hurt and sprinkle a few mothballs in your flowers? You can get 'em for a dollar at the Dollar Tree and sleep good all night.
(that woman oughta pay me for saving her cats and her door)
Shows your kind of mind, that you view moral indignation as being of sexual origin. That theory went out with Freud.
Just like some must put on their little paramilitary outfits and have little tactics and overwhelming firepower just like real army men and break into citizen's homes and abuse them to reach theirs.
Maybe some men leaped onto the bed to pin them there. That would be a best case scenario. "Procedures in the dark" care not whether the subject is 18 or 80.
