A Minneapolis woman has accused the local police of raiding her home five times in the past 10 months looking for a fugitive who doesn’t live there.
Michelle Voeller told WCCO-TV the other day that she and her daughter have nothing to do with the missing man. She said that hasn’t stopped police from pounding on their door late at night to look for “Mr. Roach.”
“We stood here and they’re pounding and they said, ‘Open up. It’s the New Brighton Police. We know you’re in there,’” Voeller said.
She said the police raids have occurred every few weeks since they moved in last August. The last raid was May 29 at 4 a.m. She said when she heard the police knocking, she just looked at her daughter.
“I just said to her, ‘Oh my gosh, when is this going to end?’” Voeller told the station.
Ashely Voeller said, “I want it to stop and I don’t want them to keep coming to our house when they guy doesn’t live there.”
New Brighton Police said officers have been to the address twice looking for a man with a warrant who used to live there before the Voellers moved in.
A police spokesman said another law enforcement agency with the same address for the man may be responsible for the other visits.
