Woman Admits Stealing Cutlery & Jewelry

November 26, 2013

A 50-year-old woman today [Nov 26] appeared in Magistrates Court where she pleaded guilty to stealing approximately $26,000 worth of silver cutlery and $19,000 of jewelry from an household she had been employed at as a housekeeper.

Terry Rogers pleaded guilty to three charges of stealing the items belonging to a family household where, over the past six years, she had been employed as a housekeeper. In her pleas to the Senior Magistrate, she admitted taking the items between January 2012 and July 2012.

In late August 2012, a family member noticed the disappearance of many items and checked with other family members to see if they’d taken or borrowed the items.

Still following up, she checked the ‘cash for gold’ operations in Hamilton who confirmed that they’d bought certain items. They checked their invoices and the photos and photo-ID’s that went with each invoiced purchase/sale. This family member was able to identify the items and the seller.

Police were called and Ms Rogers was questioned and admitted taking the cutlery and jewelry. Ms Rogers told Police that she had used the cash proceeds to buy food for her grandchildren and to send money to her son living in the USA.

Her lawyer, Saul Dismont, asked for Social Inquiry and Psychological Reports on Ms Rogers who, he said, was an American citizen who is married to a Bermudian and who had been in Bermuda since 2004.

Senior Magistrate Archie Warner ordered a SIR, extended her bail and adjourned the matter to 22nd January 2014 when Ms Rogers will be sentenced.

    How on earth do people expect to get away with these things?

    I am sure if she was in such dire straits, she could have approached her employers and asked for a loan. Noooo, she decides to violate their trust and just take whatever she wanted. Surely a woman of her mature years should have better judgement. It is hard enough to get a job at her age, who does she think will hire her now?

    Sad…

    Does she have a work permit? Maybe the employers now face prosecution?
