A housemaid is on trial in Dubai accused of stealing her employer’s credit card and withdrawing money.

According to prosecutors, the Asian maid first stole Dh6,000, followed by another Dh10,000.

She also attempted to steal Dh20,000 from the employer’s daughter’s saving fund.

When she tried to use the credit card for the third time, the card was stuck in the ATM, as the employer had reported that the card was stolen.

The maid confessed to stealing the card and withdrawing the money.

The incident came to light when the employer’s neighbour apparently told her that the maid was allowing people inside the home in her absence.

Meanwhile, the employer’s husband noticed Dh20,000 missing from their daughter’s piggybank.

She confessed to having used a sharp tool to open the box containing money.

The CCTV images also showed her committing the crime.
