A 24-year-old maid who lied to her employer that a man trespassed the house is now in trouble.
Her employer, believing the tale to be true, filed a police report on the matter last Saturday.
Police are now investigating the maid for giving false information. She had made the story up because she forgot to lock the back gate of the Bukit Timah house, said the police in a statement today.
Anyone convicted for deliberately providing false information to a public servant may be jailed up to one year, fined $,5000, or both.
