Pinay maid caught hiding stolen gold jewelry in bar of soap
A Filipina housemaid stole jewelry from her employer in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and hid them inside a bar of soap, a report of the news site Emirates 24/7 said.
The report said the 29-year-old Filipina was also accused of stealing cash from her employer and using a mobile phone to transfer the money to the Philippines.
The Filipina allegedly connived with the maid, 43, of the next-door neighbor who charged Dh20 for the prepaid telephone card used in the money transfer.
The Filipina's employer, an Emirati manager, 33, told the court that their family discovered gold jewelry missing from their house in February.
In March, the Emirati's mother also lost Dh2,000.
When she was confronted by her employers, the maid initially denied the crime but later confessed and handed over a blue bar of soap which contained the missing jewelry.
The maid cut the bar soap in half and made a hole in each half.
