A domestic worker has been charged with theft in Eastern Court for allegedly stealing merchandise from Aeon supermarket in Quarry Bay in November, just a month after another Filipina helper was arrested for shoplifting in the same store.

C. Sedano, 41, was formally charged on Jan 16 before Magistrate Peter Law.

The magistrate did not take a plea from the defendant and adjourned the case to Feb 28 at the request of the prosecution.

Law also granted an application for bail by the defendant after she was able to provide the court an address where she will be staying while the case is being heard.

He ordered Sedeno to post bail of $1,500 for her temporary release

Earlier, Law adjourned the hearing so Sedano could find a place to stay and use as her contact address for the court. She managed to obtain permission from an NGO to stay in its shelter for distressed migrants.

Sedano was accused of taking the merchandise from the Aeon Store in Kornhill Plaza, Tai Koo Shing, Quarry Bay, on Nov 14 last year.

A police report said the items she stole were one blue Adidas jacket, one white New Balance shirt, two black Adidas hoodies, one frozen fish fillet, two rolls of sushi, one pack of cooked food and two boxes of milk, all belonging to Aeon Stores (HK) Co.

No estimate of the value of the goods was provided by the police.

On Jan 15, another Filipina, J. Toquero, was fined $2,000 also in Eastern Court after she pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing assorted merchandise worth $1,600 last October in the same Aeon shop.
