VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A woman connected with the theft of a ring worth thousands of dollars has pleaded guilty to grand larceny.
Authorities say 27-year-old Chrystal Monique Gregory of Norfolk was arrested and charged with Grand Larceny on September 19.
On Monday, officials announced that Gregory had pleaded guilty with her sentencing to be held in November.
News 3’s Brendan Ponton first reported on this story in July.
A search warrant said that a man reported a ring worth $35,000, along with his wallet, was stolen from a safe in his hotel room at the Cavalier Hotel on June 21. Three days later, the victim’s credit card was used to pay for Uber three times.
While investigators initially said they requested records from the ridesharing company in order to track down the thief, police have not said what exactly led to Gregory’s arrest.
