A 32-year-old Indonesian maid, who works for the wife of Kinabatangan MP, Zizie Ezette, was nabbed after she showed off some foreign currency notes on her Facebook.
The maid was arrested Thursday night after Zizie, actress and wife of Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin, lodged a police report that her money was stolen.
On Aug 9, Zizie was alerted by her personal assistant that the maid had uploaded photos of foreign currency notes onto her social media account. Zizie, who was then overseas, instructed her assistant to search the maid’s room and call the authorities.
The personal assistant found several pieces of foreign currency notes and a currency exchange receipt. A police report was lodged after Zizie returned to Malaysia.
Police found various foreign currency notes with total value of RM5,155.
The suspect admitted to her crime and is currently under remand. Police are investigating whether any stolen money were sent to her family in Indonesia following discovery of the currency exchance receipt.
