And they went thru my shed is it ok for the police to go thru a window if I was not home?

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. But if police officers have a warrant and no one answers their knocks at the door, they can make a forced entry into the house. They don't have to wait for a time that is convenient for you to let them in. The warrant basically allows them free access to the home, unfortunately.
