The prosecution charged Millare with stealing five gold necklaces and one gold ring with an emerald stone, the property of her female widowed employer, Chung Siu-fong.

The alleged theft took place in January and February this year in the employer’s flat in Ming Chi House (Block D), Ying Ming Court, Po Lam.


The prosecutor did not mention when the theft was discovered and when the defendant was arrested.

The prosecutor said the stolen jewelry pieces were given by the employer’s late husband as presents to her. The man died some time ago.

The woman kept the necklaces and ring in a box that she locked up in a drawer in her bedroom. She placed the key in a bag, which she left in the bedroom, the prosecutor said.

Magistrate Law adjourned the hearing until Aug 3 at the request of the prosecutor, who said police investigation was not yet completed and further legal advice was needed.

In the meantime, the magistrate refused bail to the defendant and ordered her remanded in custody.

The latest jewelry theft allegation comes just more than a week after 45-year-old Filipina domestic helper, Carmelita Nones appeared in the same court and admitted stealing $14.6 million worth of jewelry, gold bars and cash from her employers in Deepwater Bay, Island South. Two of her relatives also pleaded guilty to handling or pawning the stolen goods.
