The Dubai Criminal Court fined them the value of the stolen property and sentenced them to six months in prison
A gang of five Asians stole 250 boxes of ready-made clothes and cigarettes worth Dh192,000 from a warehouse in Ras Al Khor.
The Dubai Criminal Court fined them the value of the stolen property and sentenced them to six months in prison. They will be deported after serving their sentence.
Last August, an investor from the Gulf filed a complaint claiming that certain goods had been stolen from his warehouse. He said that when he went to the warehouse he saw that the lock was broken and not in place.
The investor then reviewed surveillance tapes that captured the men breaking the lock and entering the warehouse. They were also caught on camera stealing the boxes.
A police officer involved in the investigations said a team of CID officers gathered inferences and used the surveillance tapes to identify the driver of the bus that he used to steal the boxes.
The driver was arrested and confessed to being an accomplice for 1,000 dirhams. He also informed the police about everyone else involved.
