North Bergen police tell The Jersey Journal that 19-year-old Gloria Molina of New Brunswick reported the theft late Tuesday morning. She told officers that a friend of hers had stolen $2,500 in cash and a pair of $4,000 diamond earrings while she slept in her motel room.

As they investigated her claims, police found Molina had been posting prostitution ads online. She was cited after she allegedly admitted to posting the ads.

Authorities say the reported theft remains under investigation.
