ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lizeth Iguado, pleaded guilty Wednesday for attempting to steal a man’s car at gunpoint and shooting at Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Deputies.

In March 2022, Iguado and Felicia Gonzales tried to steal a man’s car at gunpoint after meeting him at Route 66 Casino. Deputies say they got a 911 call from a man saying he had nearly been carjacked. The man says he met one of the women at Route 66 Casino and gave her a ride to Coors and Pajarito. That’s when the second woman approached the vehicle and pulled a gun on the man, demanding that he get out. The man says the women got startled and jumped into a Jeep and fled. Deputies say when they started pursuing, one of the women fired shots at them. 

Wednesday morning, Iguado pleaded guilty a number of charges, including attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault against a peace officer with a deadly weapon. She faces up to seven years behind bars when sentenced.
