Documents: Evidence Flimsy in Drug Raid

KSAL StaffMay 6, 2013

A Leawood couple is relieved to know why Johnson County sheriff’s deputies raided their home last year, but they are upset that the raid was based on what they call flimsy evidence.

Deputies stormed Robert and Adlynn Harte’s home last April looking for evidence the couple was growing marijuana. The couple wasn’t charged and the sheriff’s department refused to say why their home was targeted.

The Hartes sued for information last year, and the records were released last week. The raid was based on Robert Harte buying hydroponic equipment. Investigators also found a cup of a leafy green substance in the couple’s trash. Tests showed it was not marijuana.

A lawyer for the sheriff’s department declined to comment because of potential litigation.
