Dodgy maid cleans up in Hackney house theft
Designer clothes stolen as cleaner swipes goods from employers.
A DEVIOUS house cleaner who made more than dirt disappear from her employers’ homes has been handed a suspended jail term and ordered to pay compensation.
Anca Nechifor, 23, of Garner Road, Walthamstow, was employed by two ladies living in Middleton Road, Dalston, and De Beauvoir Square, to clean their homes.
In July last year both women discovered designer clothes had been swiped form their homes and instantly called police.
The women also texted Nechifor demanding their property back and although the clothes were returned they had �1,300 of damage.

Nechifor, who the court heard still works as a cleaner, was sentenced to four-and-a-half months in jail, suspended for two years, and ordered to do 150 hours community service.
She has also been ordered to pay �400 to one victim and �200 to the other.
DC Kieran Backhouse, Hackney CID, said: “It is hoped that this sentence will act as a deterrent to other people in positions of trust. Employers and the courts will not tolerate such behaviour.”
