Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has apologized to an elderly couple whose home was mistakenly raided on the Southwest Side.

The raid happened last Thursday night around 11:30 p.m.

Anna Jakymec, 84, and her 89-year old husband were sleeping when sheriff's police officers raided their home to search for guns and drugs, but the officers ended up barging into the wrong home.

Dart now says he feels horrible about the incident and that he has spoken with the family about being compensated appropriately.
