Dubai Police records showed that the theft had occurred in one of the government departments, which look into building maintenance in the emirate.

The department’s internal audit revealed that the convict got the AC-repairing equipment worth Dh13,348 issued for installation in buildings that he supervised but never installed them in a bid to make a fast buck.

The convict owned up to his guilt in the face of sustained interrogation by Dubai Police.
