A Filipina domestic helper will plead guilty in District Court on Apr 26 to a charge of stealing $860,000 worth of luxury watches, jewelry and gold bars from her employer in Homantin last August.

The date for Edarlyn Emperador’s plea-taking was proposed by her Legal Aid-appointed lawyer when she appeared today, Feb 24, before Judge Clement Lee.

Lee told the 50-year-old Emperador to coordinate with her lawyer about her plea and ask him to prepare the case authorities for the sentencing.


Emperador was arrested last Aug 7 after her female employer called the police when she discovered that her watches and jewelry had disappeared from a box in her closet where she had kept them.

Among the items Emperador is accused of stealing is a Rolex watch

The items that the helper is accused of stealing are a Rolex watch, three Patek Philippe watches, a white gold Piaget watch, a Roger Dubuis watch, one pair of Hermes earrings, a platinum Roger Dubuis necklace and gold bars.


At a previous hearing, the court was told the employer was looking for her Rolex watch on the evening of Aug 3 when she noticed that her other watches and jewelry were gone.
