1 FDH admits stealing jewelry from employer, another set to plead 

A Filipina domestic helper pleaded guilty Wednesday, Jan 27, in District Court to a charge of stealing more than a dozen jewelry pieces of an undisclosed value from her female employer in Ap Lei Chau last year.

Another Filipina helper accused of stealing $860,000 worth of luxury watches, jewelry and gold bars from her employer in Homantin is expected to enter her plea on Feb 24.

Revelyn Resurreccion admitted the offense before Judge W.K. Kwok, who told her to return on Apr 15 for the sentencing.

Resurreccion’s appearance in District Court was her second since her case was moved there from Eastern Court last Nov 30.

Serious criminal cases where the prescribed penalty is jail term of up to 7 years or civil disputes involving claims over $75,000 but not more than $3 million are heard in the District Court.

The defendant was accused of stealing five necklaces with pendants, two other necklaces, five pairs of earrings, one ring, and four bracelets from her employer, Lai Ching, in the latter’s residence in South Horizons.

Resurreccion has been held in police custody since her arrest on May 1, after the employer reported that her jewelry pieces were missing.


Also at the District Court was Edarlyn Emperador, 50, who is accused of stealing luxury watches and jewelry valued at $860,000 from her employer in Homantin, Kowloon.

The employer was looking for her Rolex watch when she discovered the theft

Her lawyer said negotiations were under way with the Justice Department and his client should be ready for plea after a three-week adjournment on Feb 24.


Emperador was arrested on Aug 7 after her female employer reported to police that her watches and jewelry that she kept in a box in her closet had gone missing.

The employer said she discovered the theft when she tried to look for her Rolex watch in her closet on the evening of Aug 3. As she searched the box, she found out that her other watches and jewelry were missing.
