ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)– A woman who victimized the elderly is going to prison for a long time.
Ashley Martinez went door-to-door all over Albuquerque lying to homeowners.
Police say she would tell them her car had broken down and she needed to use their phone. Once they let her inside she would steal their purses or wallets.
In one case police say she pushed an elderly man down.
Martinez faced up to 55 years in prison.
The judge sentenced her to 28 years.
