RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – A woman is suing the City of Rio Rancho after she says police got the wrong house when they arrested her.
Last year, an officer thought she wrote a citation for a homeowner living at a house on 4th Avenue southwest for a dirty yard.
Instead, she wrote up the homeowner living at a house with the same number on 4th Avenue northeast.
That homeowner, Loretta Sisneros was later arrested during a traffic stop and booked into jail for not paying the citation.
The case was dismissed.
Sisneros says her rights were violated.
