GREELEY — The Tribune reports a woman jailed for 49 days before forgery charges against her were dismissed is suing the city of Greeley, its police department and a police officer for false arrest and imprisonment.

The Tribune, in a story Thursday (https://tinyurl.com/kxsyeap ), cited the suit filed last month by 39-year-old Alma Rubi Chavez-Torres. Chavez-Torres, who had given birth to a daughter three months before, was arrested at home in front of her five children in February, 2012.

She was charged with forgery in connection with an attempt to cash a check on a Greeley man's account. The charges were dismissed when a bank videotape furnished by Greeley police showing it was not Chavez-Torres who committed the crime.

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