Fake 'cops' nabbed after they rob man of Dh1.4m in Dubai
The cops arrested the conmen within seven hours of receiving the crime report
A four-member gang who impersonated police officers and robbed a man of Dh1.4 million was caught by the Dubai Police within seven hours of receiving the report about the crime.
The four conmen took the victim to an empty place, duped him of his money and stole his mobile phone as well, said Brig. Gen. Tariq Mohammad Noor Tahlak, director of the Naif police station.
Acting on a report received from the victim, a police team was formed to investigate into the incident and identified two of the gang members.
The team followed the route where the gang took the victim, and arrested the two of the members in Al Nahda area, just seven hours after receiving the crime report, reported Al Bayan.
Tahlak said the duo had Dh265,000 in their possession. Following interrogation, they revealed the identity of their two other aides. The police arrested them as well and seized the rest of the money.
The four accused confessed to committing the crime and were referred to the public prosecution.
