Dubai Police returned an expensive watch to a tourist from which she had lost during a trip to Dubai. 
She was surprised at her home in Russia when she was contacted by Dubai Police. She hadn't filed a police report as she wasn't sure whether she had lost her watch I Moscow or Dubai.
Colonel Mohammed Aqeel Ahli, Deputy Director of the General Department of Criminal Investigations said, "There was no report in our database that matched the lost watch we have found. It was necessary to find an alternative solution to identify the owner."
"After contacting a number of concerned entities, it turned out that the watch was not purchased in the UAE. Therefore, we sought other means of help and investigations and finally found the match."
"The tourist was surprised to receive the call from Dubai Police, and she was very grateful for getting back her expensive possession" Col. Ahli added.
He emphasized that the Dubai Police General HQ was keen to restore rights to their owners and exert all efforts to ensure the happiness of the emirate's visitors, residents and citizens as per the strategic objectives of Dubai Police and the directives of Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al-Marri, the Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police.
