Maid steals jewellery

A 34-year-old Sri Lankan housemaid allegedly stole jewellery and other items belonging to her employer worth about Dh300,000, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

School teacher BAA, 42, testified that LT had been working in her house as a maid since 12 years.

“I discovered Dh4,000 missing on September 10. Our neighbour’s maid came to us and asked the accused to help her send some stuff she put in a bag to her home country. I suspected the whole matter and so I checked the stuff in the bag and found the missing amount besides some clothes of mine and my children. Also I found with her the keys of the jewellery box and my daughter’s room in where I kept the box. When I confronted her, she confessed to stealing jewellery. She returned me Dh2,500 and a golden bracelet,” she testified.
