Dubai Police arrested a European gang in less than 10 hours after they robbed a car showroom and stole jewellery and watches worth Dhs13 million.
According to the General Department of Criminal Investigation in the gang specialised in burglary and jewellery theft.
Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, the Commander-in-Chief, affirmed that the Department’s teams made great effort to arrest the gangsters and return the stolen items to their owners, despite the lack of evidence.
Al Marri said, “Thanks to the full readiness of the field teams and the good use of artificial intelligence techniques, the perpetrators were arrested in record time.”
Major General Expert Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said the gang took advantage of the poor security measures in the car showroom, which facilitated the crime, using an iron piece to remove one of the glass windows and fleeing with the thefts on motorcycles, which were also stolen, to an anonymous destination.
Al Mansouri pointed out that the gang consisted of 3 Europeans who were professionals in burglary and theft.
Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, Director of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Dubai Police, explained that the suspects worked within organised gangs specialised in robbery.
Al Jallaf pointed out that details date back to an earlier time, when the Dubai Police received a report of a theft in a car showroom. When teams rushed to the scene, he added, an Arab national, who reported the police said that when he went inside the showroom at about 9am, he discovered that all the displayed jewellery disappeared.
Al Jallaf added that upon receiving the report, a team was formed to collect evidence from the crime scene.
According to Al Jallaf, the team set a quick plan to apprehend the perpetrators before they escaped with the thefts. Teams also identified their identities.
Al Jallaf indicated that after collecting all the evidence, the gangsters were arrested before they fled and the thefts were recovered.
