Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents raided the wrong duplex while looking for a drug suspect in Buford.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead says the state agents along with Gwinnett and Hall county deputies had been watching a drug suspect's home and thought they saw him enter a duplex.

Armed with a no-knock warrant, they forced entry into the duplex and no one was in the unit. Officers banged on the other unit in the same duplex, startling the occupants.

After figuring out they were at the wrong building, agents went next door and arrested their suspect, Jesus Bello-Quinones.

He was charged with drug trafficking and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
