The Dubai Public Prosecution referred two unemployed Asian men to the criminal court for breaking into a supermarket in Dubai and stealing around Dhs4,000 and 40 packs of cigarettes.
Official records indicate that the defendants had another runaway accomplice who helped observe the area to make sure that the road was clear for the robbery.
The two defendants broke into the supermarket and directly headed for the cashier to steal the mentioned amount and cigarettes packs.
The supermarket workers discovered the robbery the next day, and immediately informed police, who in their turn lifted fingerprints and reviewed surveillance cameras to identify the thieves. The defendants were later arrested and charged with robbery.
