Family furious after police raid East Vancouver home

After weeks of gang activity in the Lower Mainland, police raided an East Vancouver home Friday afternoon — but the people who live in the house are furious.

The Rangi family told CBC News on Friday they would have let the police in if they had simply asked.

But instead, the family said police used "heavy-handed tactics" to gain entry into the home, breaking doors and anything else in their path.

Police stormed in with smoke grenades and a search warrant as they raided the home at 53rd Avenue and Knight Street, said Aman Ranji, speaking for the family.
