Woman Tells Police She Tossed 69 Tickets

A Chandler woman is facing $11,000 in fines and possible jail time after telling Scottsdale police that she threw away 69 unpaid speeding tickets.

Francesca Cisneros told detectives she thought it was perfectly fine to throw away the tickets mailed to her house.

Since March, the 32-year-old Cisneros was photographed 69 times on Scottsdale streets and the Loop 101 by Scottsdale's speed-enforcement cameras.

Five of the citations were criminal speeding violations.

Cisneros also was caught once by a red-light camera, and she faces two counts of driving on a suspended license.

All but five of her 69 speeding tickets were on the Loop 101; her top speed was 86 mph.

A City Court judge released Cisneros on Thursday on a promise to appear at a later date.
