POUND RIDGE, N.Y. -- A 32-year-old White Plains woman is alleged to have stolen jewelry from multiple homes in Pound Ridge, police said.

Hilda Velazquez has been charged with three counts of third-degree grand larceny and one count of fourth-degree grand larceny. All of the counts are felonies.

Each of the third-degree charges allow for up to seven years in prison, police said, while the fourth-degree charge allows for up to four years in prison.

Velazquez was identified as a suspect following an investigation in response to reports of missing jewelry, police said. She was arrested at her residence in White Plains, police said, with White Plains Police providing assistance.
