The Dubai Public Prosecution referred an Asian worker, aged 20, to criminal court for attempting to steal coins from a Laundromat device placed in one of Dubai’s areas.
Official records indicate that the facility’s security guard was taking an inspection tour inside the laundry room, when he caught the defendant red-handed while trying to break the coin box that belongs to the laundry machine.
Apparently, the defendant was trying to break the box’s lock to steal all the coins inside, but he immediately tried to find a way out of the place once the security guard approached him.
However, the guard managed to restrain the defendant and detain him until police arrived to the robbery scene.
The defendant confessed to attempting to steal the coins and he was charged with attempted robbery.
