Everybody ought to have a maid -- but not one who lifts diamond rings as well as carpet stains.
Luz Garcia, 43, who worked as a house clenaer for "The Maids" home cleaning services in 2009 and 2010, pleaded no contest to grand theft and possession of stolen property in a Redwood City courthouse this week.
Garcia copped to charges that she stole a $4,200 diamond ring from a home she entered while on the job and also pilfered items from other homes between December 2009 and June 2010, the San Francisco Examiner reported.
She grabbed gold in Belmont and other pieces of jewelry fro Menlo Park and Atherton. She admitted to stealing from five homes, the newspaper reported.
She will serve no more than a year in jail on the charges under the terms of her plea deal, the newspaper reported.
