CHARLOTTE — A North Carolina woman going through treatment for breast cancer says she was shocked when federal agents burst into her apartment searching for drug trafficking suspects.

WSOC-TV reports that Rosie Lee Bright says agents ordered her to lie on the floor and handcuffed her in her east Charlotte apartment early Wednesday.

Agents later learned the suspects they were looking for were in the apartment next door. They arrested two men they said are part of a heroin trafficking ring in the Charlotte area.

A spokeswoman for the FBI told the television station the address mix-up was an honest mistake. Bright says agents apologized and offered to pay any medical bills she might have because of the raid after realizing their mistake.
