The thief had robbed an expat’s belongings from a motorcycle.

Two police officers were praised for catching a thief within an hour of the crime being reported.

Colonel Rashid Al Shehhi, Deputy Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, honoured Officer Salem Abdullah Al Balushi, and First Officer Ahmed Mansour Samander at the scene of the crime for their speedy response.

According to Col Al Shehhi, the two officers combed through the Al Qouz Industrial Area after receiving a report from an expat that someone had stolen some valuables from his motorcycle while he was shopping.

The expat, who has lived in Dubai since 1999, thanked the officers for nabbing the thief in less than an hour.

The officers were honoured under the directives of Major General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs.

Al Mansouri stated that the action came under the Dubai Police General Command's commitment to motivate and value the efforts of its employees to enhance security.
