No bonnet thieves,
helper did it – PNP

The house helper who claimed that two bonnet-wearing women barged into the house of her employer in Brgy. Taculing, Bacolod City, and took about P210,000 in cash and jewelry Wednesday was found to actually be the one responsible for the theft.

This was disclosed yesterday by Station 6 commander, Chief Insp. Noel Polines, who said qualified theft charges have been filed before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office against Nelia Lauza, 33, of Araneta Street in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental.

Lauza's employers decided to send her home Sunday, four days after the alleged robbery. However, when she was about to board the taxi they noticed that her bag seemed to be heavy, Polines said.

When they opened her bag, they found the “bucket” of her employee containing about P10,000 in coins, prompting them to call the police, he said.

Polines also said Lauza was brought to Police Station 6 for investigation, where the jewelry of her employer valued at P200,000 were recovered from her possession.

Among the jewelry recovered from Lauza were a ladies' watch with diamonds, six rings, three necklaces, five pairs of earrings and three bracelets, police records showed.

Lausa had claimed that two bonnet-wearing women arrived at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday last week , and one of them threatened her with a gun while the other went to her employer's room, and took the items before leaving.

Polines said they are now clearing the relative of Lauza's employers, who was earlier eyed as the suspect in the robbery.*APN
