A US woman accused of stealing up to 1,000 pieces of luggage from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport with her husband has pleaded guilty to theft and other charges.

Prosecutors said 39-year-old Stacy Legg-King was originally charged with 27 counts of theft, drug charges and tampering with evidence.

She entered a guilty plea on Monday to two counts of theft, trafficking stolen property and drug violations.

Legg-King's sentencing date is on July 19.

Legg-King and 61-year-old Keith King were arrested in November after police alleged that she stole luggage from a baggage claim carousel. Police said a search of the couple's home revealed many suitcases without tags.

Keith King is due in court on July 13.
