An Asian cook, 36, was arrested for robbing gold worth Dhs700,000 from the house of a local football player in Dubai.
The victim was alerted with the sudden disappearance of two gold watches and a bracelet from his bedroom safe. All suspicion fell on the cook as he was the only one who had access to the bedroom to take care of the laundry.
The victim tried to control the situation without referring to the police, in consideration for the good relationship between him and the cook.
He directly asked the cook about the stolen items, but the defendant insisted that he did not steal anything.
The victim then reported the incident to the police, and matched his fingerprints to find out the truth. Eventually, the cook confessed to his crime and claimed that he threw the safe into the garbage when he failed to open it.
