BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed charges alleging a 67-year-old woman stole at least $100,000 worth of diamonds at the Denver Merchandise Mart.

The District Attorney’s Office for Adams and Broomfield counties said Thursday Huda Wadie Muhaisen (HOO’-dah WAH’-dee muh-HEYE’-zen) is accused of stealing the diamonds on March 11.

She didn’t immediately return a phone message.

Muhaisen faces one count of felony theft, which covers items worth $100,000 to $1 million.

The Merchandise Mart is in Adams County just north of the border with Denver.

Muhaisen appeared in court Thursday to be formally advised of the charge. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 7.
