Somebody needs to get this SWAT team a map. After a judge approved a high-risk search warrant on a home suspected of hiding weapons and illegal drugs in Green River, Wyoming, Sweetwater County's SWAT team moved in on March 3, seizing methamphetamine, firearms, and arresting several people, according to a release. First, however, SWAT members broke a window and used a stun grenade on the wrong house, located a block away from the real target, reports SweetwaterNOW. Once they realized their mistake, officers arranged for repairs. It isn't clear if anyone was injured. (More Wyoming stories.)
