The Dubai Criminal Court on Sunday sentenced an African gang of three brothers to 6 months in jail to be followed by deportation on charges of stealing from vehicles.

The gang members were caught after they had broken the rear side window of a vehicle and stole its contents.

According to the official records, the mastermind of the gang confessed that with the help of his brothers he robbed a large number of vehicles including the vehicle in question.

The gang members went to Umm Suqeim where they found a number of cars parked in a sandy area near a luxury hotel in Dubai. They smashed the windows of the vehicles including the car in question from which they stole a black bag, which was found later not to contain anything of value.

The second defendant confessed that he and his other brother, who is still at large, were assigned to keep an eye on the area to see that there was no one approaching. The role of his eldest brother was to choose the place and vehicle and then try to prise open the vehicle door with a screw or else break its window.

The fingerprint report issued by the General Department of Criminal Evidence showed that the fingerprints matched those of the defendants.
