A newly hired maid was arrested after stealing from her employer while the latter was sleeping.
Suspect Anabelle Tibalao was caught by a closed-circuit television camera going out several times from the house of her employer in Caloocan with some valuables.
Tibalao was arrested after her employer, Jemeyln Correa, set her up by pretending to be another person looking for a maid.
Correa said Tibalao took off with her ATM and credit cards, cellphones and P650,000.
The cash and some of the valuables were already missing after Tibalao was arrested, leading police to suspect that the latter had an accomplice.
