Video of Framingham police search goes viral, family calls foul August 12, 2019

A Framingham couple claims police illegal entered their home last week and took their money and guns. There were no arrests after the search, however, Framingham police said criminal charges are being sought in the case. A security camera in Antoinette Callahan and Ryan Fogarty's home captures the moment when police enter their home to "secure the premise" before executing a search warrant. The video was posted on HighImpactVlogs on Saturday, Aug. 11.

FRAMINGHAM - A family is alleging that police violated their constitutional rights when they entered their home last week and threatened to kill one of the dogs in the house.

Antoinette Callahan and Ryan Fogarty, both of Framingham, claim police entered their home illegally on Aug. 7. A surveillance video of the couple's interaction with plain-clothes police officers before and after they entered the house has gone viral on YouTube and Facebook.

"These police officers raided our home with no warrant in front of our children," Callahan posted on a GoFundMe.com fundraising attempt. The family is trying to raise $10,000 for legal fees. As of Monday afternoon, they raised a little less than $600.

"They forced entry into our home and threatened to kill our pregnant dog! They committed an illegal search and seizure, took all of our savings and our legally owned guns, literally took the cash out of our pockets! Now we are (sic) need to hire a lawyer to fight for our constitutional rights! We are good hard working patriotic Americans and they have robbed us down to our last pennies. Any help is appreciated! Thank you and God Bless America," reads the statement on the GoFundMe page.

The fundraiser was created Monday morning, a day after the YouTube channel HighImpactVlogs posted an edited version of the video captured on the couple's security cameras. The date on the video footage reads 4:45 p.m. Aug. 7.

Neither Callahan nor Fogarty could be reached by the Daily News for comment on Monday.

The video is taken from two security cameras - one outside and one inside - at the couple's Prior Drive home. The video begins with one officer explaining to Callahan that the officers were obtaining a search warrant for the home. He said it was part of an investigation into marijuana distribution.

Callahan tells the officers she will not allow them in until they acquire a search warrant. The officer said they were coming in to "secure" the residence, not to search it. Once in the home, two dogs began barking at the officers and one of the officers appears to either punch or nearly punch the dog and could be heard threatening the animal.

No one was arrested after the search, and it is not known if police recovered marijuana.

In a statement, police said they have applied for criminal charges.

"On August 7, 2019 members of Natick and Framingham Police assigned to the MetroWest Drug Task Force applied for a search warrant in connection with an ongoing investigation into a Prior Drive residence in Framingham," reads a written statement from Framingham Police Department. "Probable cause was found to issue the search warrant and officers subsequently executed it at the home. Pursuant to the investigation police have applied for criminal charges and a hearing is scheduled. As this is an ongoing and active investigation no additional information can be released at this time."

Police Chief Steven Trask would not say who would be charged nor would he say what the charges would be.

VIDEO: HighImpactVlog's posting of the video. (Editor's Note: There are claims made in the narration included in this video that the Daily News has not been able to substantiate.)

The video was posted with the instructions urging viewers to express their outrage at the actions of the police officers by calling the Framingham Police Department and leaving messages on the department's Facebook page. Numerous people from all over the world have followed those instructions and have begun leaving one-star reviews on the department's Facebook page, along with comments.

"Absolutely despicable behavior by those officers that entered that families (sic) home without a warrant. And to threaten to shoot a family pet in front of a child is deplorable! I hope this family sues you for such an appalling act," reads a comment left by a Facebook user identified as Izel Couper, who says she lives in Queensland, Australia.

A second comment said, "Home invaders. Horrible behaviour (sic) from people that swore to uphold the constitution. im (sic) sure the whole department is corrupt."

In a Facebook message posted at about 4:45 p.m. Monday, Framingham police responded to reader comments.

"We are aware of the video and the execution of a search warrant at that residence," the Facebook post reads. "We will take the time necessary to fully investigate the incident, and speak with all persons involved."

Comments came in at a pace of about one a minute in the 30 minutes after the police posted the message.

Explaining the law

The 12-minute video does not show the execution of the search warrant.

Defense lawyer Mark Helwig would not comment about the specifics of the case or the video. However, he did say there are times when police can enter a home prior to getting a warrant. Police cannot search the home, but they can stand by until the warrant is obtained.

"In most situations, you need a warrant," said Helwig, whose office is in Sudbury. "The law does recognize a limited exception when they're securing the premises while they're applying for a warrant."

According to a 2003 Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruling, police do have a right to enter a home without a search warrant if they have specific information that leads them to believe evidence is going to be destroyed.

"We have not had occasion to consider whether the authority to secure a dwelling allows police officers to enter a dwelling and conduct a limited search in order to ascertain whether the dwelling is unoccupied," according to the decision in the 2003 case of the state vs. Juan DeJesus. "We conclude that there is a fundamental difference between securing or controlling the perimeter of a dwelling from the outside and the entry and physical surveillance of a dwelling from the inside. We now hold that police officers who secure a dwelling while a warrant is being sought in order to prevent destruction or removal of evidence may not enter that dwelling, in the absence of specific information supporting an objectively reasonable belief that evidence will indeed be removed or destroyed unless preventative measures are taken."

Police Seize 20 Marijuana Plants, $1,722, and Multiple Guns in Framingham Raid August 13, 2019

FRAMINGHAM - Members of the MetroWest Drug Task Force seized 20 marijuana plants, more than $1,700 and multiple weapons and ammunition at a Prior Drive resident on August 7, according to a search warrant obtained by SOURCE at the Framingham Court House.

Members of the Framingham and Natick Police participated in the drug raid at 47 Prior Drive in Framingham on August 7.

A video, which included home security footage, went viral Sunday and Monday (and was posted by SOURCE yesterday).

No arrests or charges had been filed as of yesterday, August 12.

The 13-page search warrant was first made available today, August 13, at the court house

According to the warrant, Framingham Police received "numerous complaints" that over the "past few months, cars have been pulling up in front of 47 Prior Drive ... and waiting for a young male to exit the house. As the male exits the dwelling, he enters the passenger seat of these waiting vehicles, a short exchange occurs, the young male leaves the vehicle, and enters 47 Prior Dr., while the other vehicle leaves. This is said to occur multiple times a day and with multiple different vehicles," wrote Framingham Police to the judge to obtain the warrant to search the Prior Drive property.

Based on the complaints, Police "conducted surveillance" of the address on August 7.

"As the surveillance was being conducted we observed a young male with long black hair, a white sleeveless t-shirt and short enter and exit the front door of 47 prior Dr. numerous times. he entered multiple vehicles in the driveway," wrote Police in the warrant.

Around 4 p.m. a Framingham Police Sgt. observed a grat Honda with a male driver pull up in front of 47 Prior Drive. Police observed an exchange, said the warrant.

The Sgt. ordered a detective to stop the vehicle. The stop occurred at Old Conn Path. The Wellesley driver was read his rights, and he waived them. according to that detective and a Natick detective, said the warrant.

The Wellesley driver said he "bought an ounce of marijuana from a kid named 'Gino'" said the warrant. The Wellesley drive said he usually purchases from a purchased named "Ryan" at the same address, but this was the first time from "Gino," according to the warrant.

At 4:10 p.m., Police observed Gineto Callahan enter his home and enter a Honda in his driveway. Police followed Callahan and stopped him on Concord Street, according to the warrant.

Callahan, according to the warrant, was read his rights and waived them, said the warrant.

Callahan told Police, according to the warrant, "he did sell an ounce of marijuana to a kid and received $200 for the ounce." He told police the money was in his 47 Prior Drive house.

According to the warrant, he told Police "he just sells marijuana for extra cash and picks up about three zips a month (slang for an ounce.)"

Police asked him if he grows marijuana, and Callahan told Police no, according to the warrant.

Based on the confession to Police, according to the warrant, Police "decided to secure the home at 47 Prior Dr. and apply for a search warrant."

At 4:40 p.m., according to the warrant, Police arrived at 47 Prior Drive and announced themselves to Antoinette Callahan. A Framingham detective found three rooms with marijuana plants, and estimated more than the 12 plants allowed under Massachusetts law for two adults in the home.

Police later seized almost 250 grams of marijuana and 20 marijuana plants, according to the warrant.

Police also seized multiple guns and ammunition, and the license to carry card for both Antoinette Callahan and Ryan Fogarty.

Police in the warrant said they were seeking evidence to charge individuals at 47 Prior Drive for distribution of a class D substance (marijuana) and manufacturing & cultivation of a Class D drug.

In a statement yesterday, Framingham Police said, "probable cause was found to issue the search warrant, and officers subsequently executed it at the home.".

"Pursuant to the investigation police have applied for criminal charges, and a hearing is scheduled," said Framingham Police yesterday.

The police officer demanding entrance to the 47 Prior Drive home to secure the home is not employed by Framingham. He is employed as a detective for the Town of Natick.

The police officer in the video threatening to shoot the dog in the video is employed by the City of Framingham.

The search was conducted by the MetroWest Drug Task Force. It officially began at 9;19 p.m. on August 7 and ended at 11:31 p.m. that day, according to court documents.

"In the best interest of everyone involved, we are thoroughly investigating the incident," said Mayor Yvonne M. Spicer, in an email to the full 11-member City Council.

Video Of Framingham Police Raid Prompts Criticism August 12, 2019

Video shows a police officer with the MetroWest Drug Task Force threatening to shoot a family's dog after it lunged at him.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Video of a police raid at a Framingham home last week raised questions about how officers conducted the operation. The video showed an officer saying he needed to enter a family's residence to "secure" it until a warrant could be obtained. As the officers make their way inside, a family dog lunges at an officer, who threatens to shoot it.

An edited version of the video was posted on the "High Impact Vlogs" YouTube channel. Commentary indicates the officers confiscated money, marijuana and a car. Police did not confirm if anything was confiscated.

Framingham Police Chief Steven Trask declined to comment on the video or the officers' conduct, saying only that the video does not belong to the police department.

While securing the home is an exception to the warrant requirement under the Fourth Amendment, it is only allowed when the police are already in the process of obtaining a warrant and there's reason to believe evidence in the case will be destroyed.

Victoria Kelleher, president of the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said the exception of securing the home is a narrow one.

"It's for the limited purpose of securing the property only, to make sure no one in the home is tampering with the evidence sought," Kelleher told Patch. "The exception shouldn't swallow the rule - the police can't use the opportunity to conduct a warrantless search and thereby violate the Fourth Amendment."

Kelleher said that the video alone isn't enough to know whether the police were following protocol and in fact in the process of obtaining a warrant or believed evidence was being destroyed. She said the approach seemed unnecessary and "more likely to end in the loss of innocent human life, particularly where one of the officers is threatening to shoot the family dog in the home."

Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer said an investigation into the incident is underway.

"In the best interest of everyone involved, we are thoroughly investigating the incident," she said.

The city issued a statement on behalf of the police department concerning the raid:

"On August 7, 2019 members of Natick and Framingham Police assigned to the Metrowest Drug Task Force applied for a search warrant in connection with an ongoing investigation into a Prior Drive residence in Framingham. Probable cause was found to issue the search warrant and officers subsequently executed it at the home. Pursuant to the investigation police have applied for criminal charges and a hearing is scheduled. As this is an ongoing and active investigation no additional information can be released at this time. "

In the video, when the homeowner refuses to let officers in, the lead officer threatens to break down the door and begins counting to five, at which point she steps aside.

Once the officers are inside, the video shows the two dogs barking and one lunging at and apparently biting one of them. When the officer strikes the dog, the homeowner shouts, "Don't hit her, she's pregnant."

The officer says, "If that dog bites me again I'm going to f------ shoot it. It bit me in the stomach," lifting his shirt to show the bite marks.

A man who is in the home during the ordeal is patted down, as well the homeowner, who comes in halfway through the video. The YouTube channel claims the officers confiscated money, marijuana and a car from the residents of the home. Framingham police did not confirm if anything was confiscated.

Police Seized Guns, Pot Plants In Controversial Framingham Raid August 13, 2019

Police said they confiscated 20 pot plants, along with guns and cash, during a Framingham raid caught on video.

The department was criticized after the video showed police entering a home before they had a search warrant. One officer also threatened to shoot a dog that lunged at him.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - One day after a viral video prompted criticism of police for raiding a Prior Drive home without a search warrant, court documents showed that they eventually obtained one and confiscated 20 marijuana plants and several guns while executing it.

The video, posted Monday, showed Framingham and Natick police officers from the MetroWest Regional Drug Task Force demanding entry to the home during a raid Aug. 7. The lead officer told the homeowner that he did not have a warrant, but said one had been requested and that she must let him into the house in the meantime to "secure" the premises. She at first refused, the video shows, but relented after he threatened to break the door down.

On Tuesday, Framingham District Court released documents including the search warrant and a list of items confiscated in the raid.

According to the warrant, the investigation began when police received "numerous complaints" of visitors coming to the home briefly over a months-long period in a manner consistent with drug deals.

While watching the home Aug. 7, police stopped a car that had just made one such visit, according to the warrant said. The driver, a Wellesley man, waived his Miranda rights and told police he had just bought an ounce of marijuana at the Prior Drive house from "a kid named Gino," although he usually bought from a man named Ryan.

The man said he paid $200 in his last transaction, the warrant said, and that he had bought marijuana at the home "multiple times."

Police later followed a man who matched Gino's description when he left the house in a car, the warrant said. They stopped the man, identified as Gineto Callahan, who also waived his Miranda rights and admitted selling an ounce of marijuana to the Wellesley man.

Callahan also told police the $200 was inside, the warrant said, but denied there was a "grow" in the house.

Based on what they had learned from the two men, "We decided to secure the home at 47 Prior Drive and apply for a search warrant," the warrant said.

The document shows that a request for the warrant was submitted at 9:19 p.m. Aug. 7 and granted at 11:31 p.m.


The video shows daylight. Sunset on August 7, 2019 occured at 7:58 p.m.
Police eventually confiscated the marijuana plants, more than $1,500 in cash, marijuana distribution paraphernalia, several licensed guns and ammunition..

In the video, one of the officers threatened to shoot one of the family's dogs after it lunged at and apparently bit him.

There are exceptions to the Fourth Amendment prohibition against searches without a warrant, including emergency situations and cases where there is reason to believe evidence will be destroyed. But the exceptions are narrow ones, experts have said.

Framingham police did not respond to requests for comment about the raid, but Mayor Yvonne Spicer said an investigation is underway.

"In the best interest of everyone involved, we are thoroughly investigating the incident," she said.

The city issued a statement on behalf of the police department concerning the raid:

"On August 7, 2019 members of Natick and Framingham Police assigned to the Metrowest Drug Task Force applied for a search warrant in connection with an ongoing investigation into a Prior Drive residence in Framingham. Probable cause was found to issue the search warrant and officers subsequently executed it at the home. Pursuant to the investigation police have applied for criminal charges and a hearing is scheduled. As this is an ongoing and active investigation no additional information can be released at this time. "

Marijuana plants, guns found by police during search in Framingham home where viral video was shot August 15, 2019
Norman Miller 508-626-3823 Metrowest Daily News
A Framingham couple created a video of the police search, which went viral, and claimed their rights were violated. According to an affidavit written by Framingham police Detective Jay Ball, the MetroWest Drug Task Force began an investigation last week into possible drug sales at 47 Prior Drive. A security camera in Antoinette Callahan and Ryan Fogarty's home captures the moment when police enter their home to "secure the premise" before executing a search warrant. The video was posted on HighImpactVlogs on Saturday, Aug. 11.

FRAMINGHAM - Investigators say they had evidence that at least two people were selling marijuana from a Prior Drive residence before they searched the home last week. A video of the police search went viral earlier this week.

No one has been charged as part of the investigation, according to Framingham District Court records.

On Tuesday, police returned the search warrant to Framingham District Court. The warrant lists what police found, as well as the reason for the search.

According to the search warrant return, police found 247 grams of marijuana (8.7 ounces), 20 marijuana plants, at least 10 guns, more than $1,700 in cash, 15 bags of marijuana seeds, a digital scale, a role of medical cannabis stickers, packaging material, "a large amount of ammo" and five vape cartridges.

According to state law, individual residences cannot have more than 12 marijuana plants.

Video of Framingham police search goes viral, family calls foul

Antoinette Callahan, who lives at 47 Prior Drive along with Ryan Fogarty and her adult son, Gineto Callahan, released a video of police entering the home. She claimed - in social media posts and a GoFundMe fundraiser she started - that police violated the family's constitutional rights by entering the home without a warrant. Police said they were there to secure the home until a search warrant was obtained.

Police seized everything, including the marijuana, guns and drugs, and Antoinette Callahan's and Fogarty's licenses to carry. They also seized the cash. Although the reason was not listed, prosecutors often file forfeiture motions in drug cases, saying that the seized cash or property are the proceeds of drug sales.

According to an affidavit written by Framingham police Detective Jay Ball, the MetroWest Drug Task Force, which is comprised of detectives from Framingham and Natick, began an investigation last week into possible drug sales at the residence.

"Over the last week, the Framingham Police Department has received numerous complaints that, over the past few months, cars have been pulling up in front of 47 Prior Drive... and waiting for a young male to exit the house," Ball wrote.

They said the young man would get into the waiting car, sit inside for a few seconds and then go back into the house. Witnesses told police this occurred several times a day.

The task force put the home under surveillance on Aug. 7 and saw a man, later identified as Gineto Callahan, leave the house, get into a vehicle that pulled into the driveway and then get out. The vehicles then drove away. Ball wrote such behavior is typical of those selling drugs.

Police pulled over one of the cars. A Wellesley man told police he just bought an ounce of marijuana from someone named "Gino" for $200. According to the affidavit, the man said it was the first time he bought marijuana from Gino, but he bought marijuana several times from a man named "Ryan," who lives in the home. The cellphone number the man provided police matched Fogarty's cellphone number.

Police then saw Gineto Callahan driving away from the home and pulled him over. He admitted he sold the marijuana to the man.

"He said he just sells marijuana for extra cash and picks up 'about three zips a month," Ball wrote in the affidavit. A zip is street lingo for an ounce of marijuana.

Gineto Callahan told police he had only one more ounce of marijuana at the home. When police asked if he grew marijuana, he denied it.

Three members of the task force then entered the home over the objections of Antoinette Callahan, according to the video posted. Ball wrote that the detectives "secured the residence" and did a protective sweep where officers found three rooms that contained growing marijuana plants. Police had applied for a search warrant and while they waited for a Framingham District Court judge to sign it, they went to the home and entered it to make sure no evidence was destroyed.

"I believe that the home at 47 Prior Drive does have an illegal amount of marijuana inside of it and have received information from an unnamed source that all adults parties inside the home are aware of the sales of marijuana," Ball wrote in his application.

MI-Team: Video Captures Police Demanding To Enter Framingham Home Without Warrantarijuana plants, guns found by police during search in Framingham home where viral video was shot August 20, 2019
Cheryl Fiandaca WBZTV ITeam
FRAMINGHAM (CBS) - On the afternoon of Aug. 7, Framingham and Natick police, part of the MetroWest Drug Task Force, knocked on Antoinette Callahan's door telling her they had to come in and secure the home. The officers admitted they didn't have a warrant.

They also told Antoinette they suspected her teenage son was selling marijuana and were concerned that he would flush it down the toilet before they could get a warrant.

Antoinette said at the time she was at home with her 11 and 14-year-old daughters, her son's friend, and her dogs.

Her interaction with police was captured on the family's home security camera. Antoinette said she told police they couldn't come in without a warrant, but on the tape the officers said if she didn't let them in they would ram the door and someone could get hurt.

Once inside, things escalated quickly. Antoinette said she wanted to put the dogs away but wasn't given the chance to do that. The family's two mini golden doodles, Gracie and Teddy, were on the sofa barking. Gracie, who's 13 and pregnant, bit one of the officers who then punched the dog and threatened to shoot her.

Antoinette said she was afraid the officer was going to pull out a gun and shoot the dog while her 11-year-old was holding her. On the video you can see the 11-year-old get upset and tell the officer to stop being mean.

Police reports obtained by the I-Team show officers started investigating possible drug activity at the home after neighbors complained that there were cars coming and going from the home. Police told Antoinette earlier in the day they stopped her teenage son who allegedly admitted to selling marijuana out of the house.

The 38-year-old mom said police did search the home while they were waiting for the warrant, which took nearly five hours. During that time she asked to use the bathroom. Antoinette said she was told to leave the door partially open, which left her feeling embarrassed, scared, nervous, and sad.

The return on the search warrant shows police found 20 marijuana plants and a little more than eight ounces of marijuana, drug packaging materials, about $1700 in cash, and eight legally owned guns. Both Antoinette and her fiance have licenses to carry firearms, which were granted to them by the Framingham Police.

Antoinette said when police came in with the warrant to search her home, one of the officers kicked her home security camera off, telling the I-Team that all of the cameras were not recording when police were searching.

"My house was a disaster. My daughters were crying hysterically," she said.

Tom Nolan is a former lieutenant with the Boston Police and a Criminal Justice professor. He questioned the wisdom of an operation targeting marijuana distribution, telling the I-Team, "in this situation I can't check any box that says the police did anything procedurally, lawfully correct."

Nolan said police were trying to do an end run around the constitution. He also said, as a former supervisor, he would initiate disciplinary action against the police officers. Nolan said the officers' actions could do untold damage to the fragile relationship between the police and the communities they serve.

"I'm surprised someone didn't get seriously hurt or worse," Nolan said.

As for Antoinette, she said she was in fear for her life, her daughters' lives, and the lives of her dogs. She told WBZ the scene was so chaotic that she didn't know what was going to happen.

Police say no one was arrested, and that this is an ongoing and active investigation. The I-Team has learned that officers have applied for criminal charges against Antoinette and her son for conspiracy and distribution of marijuana. A hearing date is set for October.

The Framingham Internal Affairs unit is investigating the incident.

Massachusetts law MGL c.94G Section 1 allows adults 21 and over to legally possess and to grow small amounts of marijuana.
