Pittsburgh City Council today voted to pay a Sheraden woman around $3,500 after a SWAT team mistakenly targeted her home while searching for a homicide suspect.

Carla Glover of Sutherland Street filed a claim with the city for property damages after SWAT officers barged into her home on March 29. City solicitor Dan Regan said police received information that the suspect could be in the home of either Ms. Glover or her neighbor, but later learned that Ms. Glover’s address was “incorrect,” he said.

In the process of executing the search warrant, officers damaged Ms. Glover’s door, furniture, the carpet and other items in the home. She will receive $3,454.27, with the remainder of the payout going to the city for an unpaid tax bill.

Ms. Glover could not be reached for comment.
