In a bizarre incident, a man has been arrested for stealing a camel to gift it to his girlfriend in Dubai, UAE’s Arabic daily Al Bayan reported.
The man’s girlfriend wanted a camel as a birthday gift.
The desperate man, who could not afford to buy one, hatched a plan to steal one.
He noticed a farm near his place and found a newborn camel.
He stole the animal and presented it to her.
The owner of the farm reported to Dubai Police about the disappearance of a newborn camel.
The police reached the site and searched for animal but could not trace it.
The police suspected a theft.
According to the daily, Brigadier General Abdullah Khadim Bin Suroor Al-Umar, Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, said a person reported that he found a newborn camel in front of his farmland.
The police reached the site but refused to buy the man’s story that he found the animal, especially since the distance between the farm where the camel was born and his farm was more than 3 kilometres.
The police pointed out that there is a main road that separates the two sites, and it's impossible for a newborn camel to walk that far.
The police said that under duress, the man confessed to the crime.
He said that he wanted to make his girlfriend happy on her birthday.
He entered the farm in the night and scooted away with the animal.
The man, out of police fear, made up a story thinking he would get away with the crime.
The couple were transferred to competent authorities for their crime.
The baby camel was reunited with its owner, thanks to Dubai Police.
