A sixth worker was handed two years in jail followed by deportation on the same charge and for hiding the stolen objects in his home until the partners in crime found a buyer. The court also ordered the seizure of the stolen objects. The court also fined a seventh accused a sum of Dh1,000 for covering up the crime as he knew about the theft and did not report it to the authorities. The Eastern Region Police received a tip-off indicating that electric cables and equipment were taken away from a contracting company operating there.

Having investigated into the occurrence and gathering the information required to help identify the stealers, suspicions pointed at a number of workers at the company.

On questioning them, the culprits confessed to the crime.
