The DEA wasn’t barking up the wrong tree when agents raided a doggy daycare in Washington state.

King 5 News reports that Arlington Doggy Daycare was selling heroin out of its business in Arlingotn.

Busted was 42-year-old David Funk, who was charged this week with knowingly and internationally distributing heroin.

Funk also lives in a mobile home on the property of Arlington Doggy Daycare.

His relationship with the business wasn’t immediately clear.

A well-known preacher who rescues kidnapped children in Africa is the subject of an FBI investigation after agents raided his home and ministry headquarters, CBN News reports.

Sam Childers, who last year won the Mother Teresa Humanitarian Award for his work, found out last week that agents combed through his house and ministry in Somerset County, PA.

“I was told they came in guns drawn and told everyone to put their hands in the air, patted everyone down,” Childers told CBN News.

“They made them all leave the building, put my daughter into a closed room and they started their search,” he continued. “We suspect that they were searching for things leading, showing that I’m smuggling arms to Africa and selling them, which is totally crazy.”

Childers said he’s uncertain why agents searched his places but said he did nothing wrong.

The FBI couldn’t be reached for comment.

Be careful what you write on Facebook.

In one case, the FBI has the right to access the Facebook posts of a woman who is suing the bureau over what she claims was a misguided 2011 raid, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Shaquel Adams must turn over pages from her Facebook account, particularly to demonstrate claims that she suffered from severe emotional distress.

“While the Court acknowledges that discovery of such matters is intrusive and regards personal matters which are typically not shared publicly, by asserting claims seeking damages for their emotional distress allegedly sustained during the events of March 3, 2011, Plaintiffs have put their own mental health, therapy and school records at issue in this case,” U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer wrote.

Charges have not yet been filed.

A federal investigation has broken up an alleged sex slave operation involving girls as young as 14 and 15 years old in the Houston area, ABC 13 reports.

Several people are in custody after agents raided Houston bars that doubled as brothels Thursday, according to feds.

An indictment recently obtained by ABC 13 accuses the suspects of running an underage sex slave operation since 1999.

The victims were women and girls from Mexico, according to ABC 13.

“I think most of you will agree that nowhere in the world, especially right here in Houston, in our United States, should any human being be trafficked for profit or used as a reusable commodity,” said FBI special-agent-in-charge Stephen Morris.

When DEA agents raided a house in San Diego and found ecstasy pills in April 2012, they placed Daniel Chong in a DEA holding cell.

What happened next cost the Justice Department $4.2 million in a lawsuit settlement that is expected to be announced today, the Associated Press reports.

The 23-year-old, who was not accused of any wrongdoing, spent four days in a DEA holding cell without food or water. He drank his own urine and was covered in feces when agents found him.

Chong was an engineering student at the University of California when he was at a friend’s house who was raided, according to the AP.

Members of a Michigan militia, who were acquitted last year of trying to overthrow the federal government and murder police officers, are suing the FBI and Michigan State Police, saying feds violated their constitutional rights by raiding their homes and seizing their guns, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The March 27 lawsuit was filed by the Hutaree, a militia that believed the Antichrist, possibly President Obama, is leading the country. The goal is to create a “Colonial Christian Republic.”

The raids in March 2010 led to numerous charges but each defendant was acquitted.

During the raid, agents seized more than 40 guns and 100,000 of ammunition.

They said the DEA acknowledged the mistake and apologized.
