Denver woman gets photo-radar ticket for her stolen SUV

DENVER (AP) — A Denver woman says police mailed her a ticket after photo radar caught her SUV speeding. But it wasn’t her behind the wheel — the vehicle was stolen weeks before.

Denver news station KMGH-TV reported Monday ( ) that Melissa Gonzales got the ticket showing her 2014 Ford Explorer going 85 in a 45-mph zone on Sept. 15, about two weeks after it was taken from outside her home.

She hopes someone recognizes the four males in the photo, but she says it’s a little upsetting to see them smiling.

Gonzales says her SUV also got a parking ticket and triggered a $9.20 toll in the Denver area last month. Both were mailed to her.

She says the paper trail makes it seem like whoever is driving wants to be found.
