A 42-year-old Indonesian domestic worker was charged with one count of burglary at Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Apple Daily reports that the defendant, Sri Handayani, is accused of entering a flat in Park Avenue, a residential building in Kowloon’s Tai Kok Tsui, on September 22, with intent to steal.

The court heard that, at an earlier date, the defendant was asked by her employer to take a family member who lives in Park Avenue home. However, she did not return the key, instead keeping it to sneak back into the flat on September 22.

The defendant did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody. Headline Daily reports that the trial will be continued on December 18 pending further police investigations and legal advice.

The reports did not mention any loss caused by the burglary.
