ALBUQUERQUE – Sabrina Morgan, 39, of Jeddito, Ariz., pled guilty today in federal court in Albuquerque, N.M., to a larceny charge arising out of her theft of cash belonging to a commercial business located in Naschitti, N.M.


Morgan was charged in an indictment filed on March 14, 2017, with stealing more than $1,000 from the Red Mesa Trading Company, which is located on the Navajo Indian Reservation in San Juan County, N.M.
