Maid jailed six months for stealing more than $10k from employer Published on Dec 11, 2012 2:34 PM


A Filipino maid who stole more than $10,000 worth of property from her employer was jailed for six months on Tuesday.

Elma Dela Cruz Romero, 41, pleaded guilty to stealing cash and jewellery totalling $10,349 from Madam Chua Siew Ling, 46, at her home in Wellington Circle in Sembawang on Dec 1.

The court heard that the family was away in Malaysia when Romero used a hammer to knock the door knob of the victim's master bedroom and managed to open it. She also used the hammer to force open the cupboard drawers in the master bedroom and other rooms.

After stealing the items, she sought a neighbour's help to call the police, claiming the flat had been ransacked.

All the items were recovered.

A second charge of giving false information to the police was taken into consideration during her sentencing.
