OGDEN, Utah (Standard-Examiner) — Drug agents in Utah have apologized for serving a warrant at the wrong house.

Agents broke down a door and handcuffed a staff member and a resident of an Ogden group home for the mentally disabled.

The Standard-Examiner reported Tuesday that Ogden Police Lt. Chris Kovalsky said the department will review its procedures after the March 12 incident.

Police spoke with the operator of the group home and had the door repaired.

The underlying drug investigation that resulted in the warrant service is ongoing.

The father of the resident said his son functions at the level of a 13-year-old child, and the group home provides a safe environment.
