Lakewood, Washington, police called Dan Neary and told him they were looking for Duane Samms. Neary told him Samms had been living with a woman he was renting a house to, but he said he'd evicted both of them. Still, he agreed to meet police at the house and let them search it. The cops, however, didn't keep their part of the agreement. The SWAT team showed up two hours early, tore the garage door off, broke all the windows and generally wrecked the place. They didn't find Samms.
