Four Africans were sentenced to six months of imprisonment and a fine of Dh970,000 after being involved in a theft case. The court ruled the four to be deported after serving their jail term.
The case followed when an employee of a shipping company in Al Muteena, Dubai, discovered the company was burglarized and immediately informed her boss.
In the interrogation, the company owner stated that the Dh786,000 and Dh184,000 kept inside the headquarters were lost.
Upon checking the surveillance cameras, the owner witnessed three Africans break inside the building while another person watched the place.
The authorities responded to the crime and gathered evidence in the area. They managed to identify the suspects through biometrics.
The police arrested two of the suspects with Dh3,000 in their possession. One suspect admitted that he was assigned to watch the place, for which he received Dh20,000.
The other suspect also received Dh50,000 as his share of the robbery. Both confessed that the rest of the money was sent to their home country.
According to police, the third suspect was arrested in the neighboring emirate and the fourth at Dubai International Airport, attempting to travel outside the country. RZSP/Expat Media
