Md. mayor's dogs killed by SWAT after cops deliver pot

Source: RawStory

BERWYN HEIGHTS, Md. A SWAT team raided the home of a Washington,
D.C.-area mayor, killing his two black Labrador retrievers and seizing
an unopened package of marijuana delivered there.

Prince George's County Police said Berwyn Heights Mayor Cheye Calvo
brought a 32-pound package of marijuana into his home that had been
delivered by officers posing as delivery men. The Tuesday evening raid
was conducted by county police narcotics officers and a sheriff's office
SWAT Team.

The package was addressed to Calvo's wife, Trinity Tomsic. His
mother-in-law had asked the supposed delivery men to leave the package
outside. Calvo has not been charged, though police said he, his wife and
his mother-in-law are "persons of interest" in an ongoing investigation.

"We never opened the box. We have nothing to do with this box," Calvo said.

Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. Mario Ellis says deputies "apparently
felt threatened" when they shot the dogs.

Calvo said officers entered about 7:30 p.m., first shooting 7-year-old
Payton. They then pursued 4-year-old Chase, who ran away and was shot by
police from behind, he said.

Calvo said he doesn't have any idea how the package ended up at his
house. He called the raid "the most traumatic experience" of his life.

Calvo, who called his town "Mayberry inside the Capital Beltway," gets a
small stipend as mayor and works at the SEED Foundation, a nonprofit
that runs public boarding schools for at-risk students. His wife works
as a state finance officer.

"These were two beautiful black Labradors who were well-known in the
community. We walked them twice a day; little kids knew their names and
would come up to them and pet them," he said
