Two Asian men who worked at the Sharjah Free Zone have been arrested for stealing mobile phones from an airplane. The two workers would clean the planes that arrived at the Sharjah International Airport, and while cleaning they pocketed some phones left behind in a bag.
Cleaners are supposed to report lost articles to the authorities. The two cleaners, instead of reporting the matter, tried to sneak it out of the airport. However, another worker saw them and according to him the two accused threatened to report the matter to the authorities, and the police.
During the court hearing, the two suspects confessed to the theft but denied threatening their colleague. The court adjourned the case to October 25.
