Prosecutors say 39-year-old Stacy Legg-King originally was charged with 27 counts of theft, drug charges and tampering with evidence. She entered a guilty plea Monday on two counts of theft, trafficking stolen property and drug violations.

Legg-King's sentencing date is July 19.

Legg-King and 61-year-old Keith King were arrested in November after police alleged that she stole luggage from a baggage claim carousel. Police say a search of the couple's home revealed many suitcases without tags.

Keith King is due in court July 13.
