Associated Press | March 23, 2006

HORN LAKE, Miss. An elderly Mississippi couple is in the hospital after police burst into their home thinking it housed a methamphetamine laboratory.

A heavily armed team stormed the house in Horn Lake before dawn yesterday.

A man and a woman -- both in their 80s -- were injured as police secured the house. No drugs were found.

Police say the woman suffered a dislocated shoulder and the man had bruised ribs.

Police later raided another house and arrested two people on drug charges.

The police chief says an investigation is under way.
