MOORE, Oklahoma -

A Moore woman claims police officers harassed her in her own home. Now, the Moore Police Department admits it is taking a closer look at their own officers following the incident.

According to Moore Police, the incident stemmed from a petty larceny call which led the officer's to the home of Amy McKinzy.

“This traumatized me,” said Amy McKinzy, who is still in disbelief over her encounter with three Moore police officers earlier this week.

“I was scared. I was in shock. I couldn't believe it was happening,” she recalled.

She says the officers showed up around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, August 26, banging on her door.

“I said give me a minute so I can put some clothes on, I'm not dressed,” she said.

According to the Moore Police Department, the officers were there to issue her a citation for stealing merchandise from the nearby GFF Store.

“The store manager, whoever was in charge, supposedly followed her that's how they knew where she was at,” said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with the Moore Police Department.

McKinzy maintains she did not steal anything from the store. But more than be accused of stealing, McKinzy is more upset by the way she said she was treated, the officers allegedly barging into her home, rummaging through her things as she sat there naked and helpless.

“They didn't give me a chance to get dressed,” McKinzy said. “I didn't allow them in my house, they went through my stuff.”

“If that's indeed what happened and wasn't allowed to put her clothes on, then yes, that's not the way that we handle things, especially on a petty larceny, that's something that we will take very seriously and will be look at if that's what happened,” said Lewis.

McKinzy issued a formal complaint against the officers on Sunday.

“What happened to me is never going to leave my mind. It's always going to be there,” McKinzy said. “I'm not going to forget it.”

Now that McKinsy filed her complaint, an internal investigation will be conducted. At this point, no disciplinary actions have been taken against the officers.
