FRESNO (CBS/AP) — A federal grand jury has charged a housekeeper at a Yosemite National Park hotel with 32 counts of first degree burglary and theft for stealing cash from guests’ rooms.

The U.S. Attorney General’s Office says Thursday that court documents show Jennifer Crystal Downing stole cash from customers at the Ahwahnee Hotel between March and October. The 39-year-old hotel maid was working on the Ahwahnee’s housekeeping staff at the time.

Prosecutors say Downing faces up to seven years in prison and $350,000 in fines.

    It’s pretty sad to hear stories like this, it sort of gives that industry a bad name. I have a wonderful Housekeeper that has been loyal to our family. But to be quite honest, I was definitely weary when I was initially looking because of sad stories like this.
