The suspects under police custody.
In a swift operation Dubai Police recently arrested two Europeans for stealing expensive jewellery from a store within 12 hours after receiving the theft report.
Dubai Police apprehended thieves, who wore eyeglasses and wigs to deceive police, just minutes before their flight was to take off.
The arrest was made after the Dubai Police Command & Control Centre received an emergency call reporting some expensive jewellery stolen from a jewellery shop display. Security patrols were immediately dispatched to the scene and spoke to the shop owner, who confirmed the theft.
Dubai Police then reviewed the CCTV footage showing the suspects committing their crime while hiding their identity by wearing face masks and flat hats.
Thorough investigations revealed that the suspects had entered a building under construction and disguised themselves before they committed their crime, using simple and silent tools to break into the display and steal the jewellery.
Dubai Police collected evidence, lifted fingerprints off the crime scene, and tracked the suspects’ movements.
They further concluded that the suspects had left the crime scene, entered a building under construction to change their attire, and returned to their hotel, leaving their shoes and disguise tools behind in a landfill for construction waste.
Upon inspecting the suspects’ hotel room, Dubai Police recovered a torn piece of paper detailing the crime plot and method. They then pursued the suspects who had boarded a plane in an attempt to escape the country.
Dubai Police arrested the suspects, recovered the stolen jewellery from one of their bags, and seized the crime tools in their possession.
During interrogatoin guards confessed that his share in the stolen amount was Dhs150,000 which was sent to his home, while the rest of the amount was distributed among the others equally.
Dubai Criminal Court prosecuted three Arab men on robbery charges, and sentenced them to 3 months in jail, followed by deportation and a Dhs700 fine each.
During investigations, the victim testified saying, “Since 2013 and until 2018, I discovered that my gold jewellery were going missing from different places around the house, including my daughters’ jewellery as well.”
The Ministry, on Saturday, on its official twitter account said, “In view of the announcement by the health authorities in the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea of monitoring outbreaks of "Marburg" virus, and based on the Ministry's concern for the safety of the country's citizens, the Ministry advises to postpone travel to the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in this period.”
Environmental activists threw black liquid into the waters of a Roman fountain in Piazza di Spagna in the Italian capital, Rome, during a protest in which they spoke of the "end of the world" scenario.
They also do not know how to draw the attention of passersby to help them, which puts them at serious risks including death.
