A gang of three Asians was imprisoned and referred to criminal court on robbery charges for stealing electric cables worth Dhs122,000, from a Dubai construction company.
Court records reveal that the robbery took place last December. The gang kept a close watch on the company and waited for the right moment to strike.
They waited until the security guard had left the company’s warehouse then broke the locks using a cutting object and stole the electric cables.
Upon his return, the security guard noticed the robbery and immediately informed his managers, who in turn reported the incident to police.
Police carried out intensive investigations to reveal the identity and whereabouts of the defendants, and successfully managed to apprehend them one by one. The defendants confessed to their crime.
The decomposed remains were found at sea, and experts of the General Department of Forensics and Criminology at Dubai Police have successfully utilised forensic 3D facial reconstruction technologies to help update the case of unidentified human remains.
Official records indicate that the victim was coming out of an exchange after withdrawing the money when he was suddenly attacked by two of the defendants.
