SINGAPORE: An Indonesian maid has been jailed six weeks after she stole cash and jewellery from her employer and hid them in her private parts.
Forty—one—year—old Siti Nur Herlina was found guilty of two counts of theft on Monday.
Another count of theft and one count of contravening the Prisons Act were taken into consideration.
Sometime in September this year, Siti stole a yellow bracelet and four pieces of ear studs, worth a total of S$410, from her employer’s daughter.
On another occasion in the same month, Siti stole several clothes, makeup and tampons from her employer.
On September 20, she told her employer that she wanted to leave Singapore.
Checking her luggage, her employer found several stolen items, and alerted the police.
Siti was arrested and detained at Changi Women’s Prison.
During a search by prison officers, four ear studs, a bracelet and S$4 were found hidden in her private parts.
The items were subsequently seized.
For theft, she could have been jailed up to seven years and fined on each charge.
