A gang of six Asians were arrested and referred to criminal court, for robbing a Dubai company’s warehouse and stealing medical masks worth Dhs150,000.
The robbery took place last June, when an employee at the warehouse filed a police report stating that the warehouse’s lock was broken and a number of 156 boxes of medical masks were missing.
Each box contained 1000 masks. The defendants were suspected to commit the robbery after complete planing.
Investigations revealed their whereabouts, and each defendant confessed to planning the robbery in order to sell them.
The five-member gang, comprising four men and a woman, all Asians, had entered the country on visit visas.
The suspect committed the robbery with the help of two other runaway accomplices, and sold two watches to his colleague for Dhs10,000 and convinced him not to report the theft.
