WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) - Jurors have convicted a Philadelphia woman of stealing more than $35,000 worth of cellphones from two stores in New Jersey.

Prosecutors believe 27-year-old Fatima Aviles used a former employee’s access card to enter two Verizon stores in Glassboro and Washington Township in 2013.

Authorities say phones valued at $35,067 were stolen during three burglaries. A fourth break-in was prevented when a storage room lock was changed.

Aviles’ attorney claimed the thief was the former employee.

None of the phones was recovered.
