For most women, the vagina serves the purposes of sexual intercourse and/or childbirth.
For this 28-year-old maid, it served as a temporary safe-house for her stolen loot.
Bajo Nelgielyn Bobita stole S$5002 from her elderly employer’s safe and hid the cash in a sanitary pad in her room.
Later, she put the money in a plastic bag and stashed it in her vagina.
Her employer, a 69-year-old businessman, made a police report when he discovered the money was missing and Nelgielyn was arrested.
In Changi Women’s Prison, a body scanner revealed that there was a foreign object hidden within her vaginal cavity.
The bag containing the cash was discovered after she was searched.
Besides the S$5002, Nelgielyn also stole another S$3000 from her employer, which she remitted home to her family in the Philippines.
She was jailed yesterday for 16 weeks, after pleading guilty to 2 charges of theft.
