An Instagram influencer has filed a $30 million lawsuit against the New York Police Department after they mistakenly used a photo of her on a wanted poster for a thieving hooker.

Eva Lopez, 31, of Queens, said she was on vacation in Florida on August 16, 2021, when she saw the wanted poster featuring the photo of her, the New York Post reported.

The poster shows Lopez, a bartender and fashion influencer, posing in a pink tube top and claims she is wanted for grand larceny after allegedly going on an escort service with a customer and stealing his roommate's $13,000 Rolex watch and credit card.


Lopez said she contacted the NYPD, who allegedly told her they knew about the error and had taken down all the posts with her photo - but Lopez said the damage had already been done with the wanted poster being viewed millions of times.
