The prosecutor said the offense was serious and the amount involved, huge.

Ramos is accused of stealing16 pieces of gold jewelry from her employer in Kowloon Tong between February and November last year.

The police are said to be still trying to recover the stolen items.

Meanwhile, a Filipina domestic helper who was arrested after accepting a parcel containing suspected dangerous drugs appeared in court again on Feb. 18.

Michelle Mardo, a 41-year-old mother of three, was told by Eastern Court magistrate Cheng Lim-chi that she could go to the High Court to apply for bail.

But Mardo’s lawyer did not apply for bail as he sought an adjournment for further investigation and legal advice.

Magistrate Cheng set the next hearing of the case on Apr 15.

Mardo was arrested on Sept 27 after she accepted a parcel from Ecuador containing 418 grams of suspected cocaine from an officer posing as a UPS delivery man.

She was charged with one count of drug trafficking.

Prosecutors said the substance in the parcel contained nearly 300 grams of pure cocaine.
