LOS LUNAS, N.M. – A 36-year-old woman was arrested for harassment Sunday after allegedly following a 16-year-old girl from Albuquerque to Los Lunas.

The girl accused Brandy Layden, 36, of following her for 40 minutes as she traveled from near Coors and Arenal in Albuquerque to a grocery store in Los Lunas while on the phone with police.

When police caught up to Layden, she reportedly tried to escape but was blocked in by a police vehicle. Layden claimed she thought she knew the girl but the girl and her mother stated they never met Layden before.

Layden pleaded not guilty to harassment.
