Dubai: Thieves arrested in 10 hours after Dh13 million robbery
The robbery was carried out at a showroom.
The Dubai Police have arrested a gang that carried out a Dh13 million robbery at a showroom. The European suspects were arrested in less than 10 hours after the crime was reported.
According to the police, the three suspects used an iron tool to remove one of the windows at the store. They stole jewellery and watches worth millions of dirhams and then fled on stolen motorcycles.
A team of officers managed to arrest the suspects despite the fact that they hadn’t left any traces at the crime scene, according to Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police.
The stolen items have been restored to the rightful owners.
Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansoori, assistant commander-in-chief for criminal investigation, said the gang took advantage of the lax security measures in place at the shop.
Brigadier-General Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation, said the accused were part of “organised gangs that specialised in robberies”.
An Arab man had opened the shop at 9am to find all the jewellery and watches missing. He immediately called the police.
