COPS LOSE APPEAL OF BOTCHED RAID
Dill pickle sandwiches are still Darryl Crampton's favourite.
But 10 years ago, he found himself wearing one after members of the Calgary Police Service tactical unit burst into his home, ordered him to the floor and searched for a marijuana grow operation that didn't exist.
Alberta's Court of Appeal recently ruled in favour of Crampton, upholding a lower court judgment awarding the former Calgary resident $20,000 for the five cracked ribs and bruised jaw he sustained in the incident.
