HANOVER, VA –The FBI raided a Hanover County home in search of child porn, only to discover they'd raided the wrong house.

Federal investigators targeted the Mechanicsville home after discovering child porn was being downloaded to computers using the homeowner's internet service, according to federal court documents.

But after raiding the home in November and subsequently launching a full investigation, court documents show agents discovered the computers with the downloaded child porn didn't belong to the couple, but a neighbor.


law enforcement cant seem to figure this new fangled 'internet' out....

This is real amateur hour stuff, surely the feds did a little goundwork before causing criminal damage and waving guns about ?

Don't worry, it's not the internet that they can't bother figuring out.  It's what the actual street address is.  ....and the internet.

Raid parties often get the wrong home due to paperwork errors, not really knowing just where in the hell the address is(crazy, but true), and good old fashion laziness.

So there's the length of time between the raid and when the error was discovered (many weeks it appears) there will have been untold damage in the relationship of the couple (she believing him to be a ped and him denying it), their reputation suffering in the workplace and the community, continuing damage because once the accusation has been made nothing will change the minds of some people, their own personal trauma from being accused and grilled in interrogation, and having their computer seized and personal data examined minutely (things that may not be illegal but still personal and private, all now known to the plod).

I say sue the bastards.

This isnt the first case of this sort and in those others the feds have waited until they could catch someone at a keyboard, for all the reasons suggested above this is one crime when you need to follow procedure and catch the miscreant red handed, let us hope they tighten up their procedures to ensure no one else has to suffer from such poor quality investigations.

Sleezer was stealing his neighbor's unsecured Wi-Fi signal to commit the crimes, according to court documents.

The FBI raided the correct house the internet service was at.  It's just that the neighbor was stealing their Wi-Fi to commit the illegal act.

Don't setup an unsecured Wi-Fi or WEP "secured" either use WPA2
