Woman claims MPD wrongfully searched her house

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -  "They could have at least apologized," says LaKisha Dixon.

She just wants to hear Montgomery police officers say they're sorry. Last month, officers entered her home without even knocking on the door. Dixon and two children were inside.

"It was three tall men with masks on and big oozie guns pointing at me like, "Get on the ground!  Get on the ground!"

Not only was the experience frightening, but Dixon says police had the wrong house.

When she tried to explain,"they told me to shut up and be quiet before they take me to jail."

A Montgomery Police Department search warrant instructed officers to search 812 South Union Street.

Instead, they entered Dixon's home--810 North Union Street.

The two addresses are a mile and a half apart.

"I feel violated. I feel like they trespassed," says Dixon.

WSFA 12 News contacted the Montgomery Police Department.

Investigators told us they're handling the matter internally by interviewing each officer involved.

Dixon says even though the incident is over, it still affects her kids.

"They're scared of police officers. They said the police [are] going to get them, and it shouldn't be like that. They should think of the police to help them."

Right now the Montgomery Police Department isn't admitting whether they did anything wrong or not.  Investigators say they're still sorting out the facts.

Dixon has an attorney and is hoping for compensation for home repairs and emotional damages.

The department has until November 5th to complete its investigation.
