    Local and federal authorities raided a townhouse in Quincy, Massachusetts, but according to the owner, they chose the wrong home.

    There are plenty of unanswered questions after the FBI and Quincy Police raided the building on Quarry Street. The man living there says they bashed the door in Tuesday and served a search warrant, rummaging through everything.

    "All my drawers were gone, things that were sealed were opened," he said.

    He says agents handcuffed him, dragged his roommate downstairs and asked where they kept the drugs.

    "And they asked me if I was a drug dealer," he said.

    Because no one was charged, necn is not revealing anyone's identity. But this man says what went down was a clear violation of their rights.

    "I felt humiliated, powerless," he said.

    An FBI spokesperson wouldn't elaborate further, but issued a statement saying the FBI and the Quincy Police Department were conducting court-authorized activity in connection with an ongoing federal investigation.

    This man denies any illegal activity goes on inside his house and believes they were framed.

    "Somebody really hates me, or him, or both of us," he said. "Somebody is jealous."
