MANILA – Authorities are now looking for a househelp who allegedly stole a bag from her employer containing items and cash estimated to be worth up to P2 million.

The employer, Noel Tio, told ABS-CBN News that he left his bag at his condominium unit with his househelp, Cristina Parra, who was just on her second day of employment.

Tio said he was surprised to see his door left open when he came back from shopping after five hours.

The building's CCTV showed the househelp in the elevator, holding the bag containing the Tio’s possessions.

"They should've been able to do something about it," Tio said, questioning the building's security as this is already the second time that a robbery occurred at his unit.

Tio is now asking help to locate the suspect, who was revealed to be using different names to hide her true identity.

There is a P100,000 bounty for anyone who will be able to locate the suspect. – From a report by Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News
