SINGAPORE - A maid who stole more than $60,000 worth of property from her employer's household was jailed for 14 months on Monday.

Indonesian Mellysa, 30, who goes by one name, admitted to five charges of theft from her employer and members of the family at a condominium at Draycott Drive between March and May this year.

Five other charges were considered during her sentencing.

A district court heard that she started stealing shortly after she began working for Madam Karen Yip Ka Ling, 47, early this year.
