"A woman who was barred from her home during a fruitless search for a missing gun is suing Waterloo Regional Police for $10,000. The lawsuit in small claims court stems from a high profile 2007 incident in which an undercover officer’s handgun was stolen near Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate Institute. ... The teen’s lawyer, Brennan Smart, publicly accused police at the time of charging him without reliable evidence as a public relations ploy. Now the teen’s mother is seeking damages because she and her other three children were forced to stay with neighbours after police seized her rented townhouse for almost three days without a warrant."
