A Dubai resident caught his maid of stealing cash from his wallet.
The employer had long suspected that the household service worker had been taking money without his permission although he had no evidence, reported Emarat Al Youm.
He set a trap by placing Dh1,500 in his wallet and leaving it on the table. He went outside for prayer and left the maid at home.
He later returned and found that his wallet contained Dh1,300; he was missing Dh200.
The maid denied stealing the money so he called the police until she confessed where she had hidden it. The maid was referred to the public prosecution.
