GREELEY, Colo. — A Greeley woman is suing her local police department because she said she was arrested and put in jail for 49 days before charges against here were dismissed.

According to the Greeley Tribune, Alma Rubi Chavez-Torres, 39, filed a lawsuit claiming false arrest and imprisonment.  She was arrested in February 2012 at her home in front of her five children, including a baby just three months old.

She was charged with forgery and attempt to cash a check on another man’s account. According to the newspaper, she was released when surveillance video from the bank showed someone other than Chavez-Torres at the bank making the deposit.

Greeley city attorney Douglas Marek said the city denies the allegations.
