“By the time I got to the door, they had already opened the door, with his hand in, and put a gun to my dog’s head.”
PHILADELPHIA, PA – A couple and their two daughters were booted from their home without warning following their son’s first-time arrest over $40 worth of drugs. The homeowners were never accused of wrongdoing or charged with a crime.

This nightmare for the Sourovelis family began earlier in 2014, when police barged into the family home to arrest 22-year-old Yanni Sourovelis.
‘By the time I got to the door, they had already opened the door, with his hand in, and put a gun to my dog’s head,’ recalled Yanni’s mother, Markela, to CNN.
The police report stated that Yanni was in the bathroom when he was arrested. Officer Woertz ‘could hear the toilet running’ and proceeded to break down the bathroom door to dutifully enforce prohibition laws.
Yanni Sourovelis had no arrests, prior to being caught with the tiny amount of drugs. He was accused of selling heroin from the family’s home. His parents stated that they had no knowledge of the alleged illegal activity.
