Dubai: Duo on trial for Dh229,000 villa robbery
The defendants are already serving time in a Dubai prison over a different crime.
Two men of Asian origin — who are serving time in a Dubai prison for a different crime — are now standing trial over a robbery committed five years ago.
In the fresh trial, they are accused of stealing cash and jewellery worth Dh229,060.
Documents available with the Dubai Public Prosecution revealed that on June 29, 2015, the two accused had entered a villa at Port Saeed neighbourhood in Dubai through a back door while the property’s owner was travelling abroad.
The men managed to sneak into his bedroom, and stole the cash and valuable jewellery by breaking open a safe.
The villa owner’s valet informed him about the theft. Soon, the owner lodged a complaint with the Dubai Police.
The suspects were arrested after the stolen cash and jewellery items were found from their accommodation.
The public prosecution referred the accused to the Dubai Criminal Court, where their trial is in progress.
