DUBAI – A teenager has been arrested in Sharjah for stealing three cars parked in Ajman’s Al Nuaimia area, according to police.
The Ajman Police said the 19-year-old Asian suspect, M.K. confessed to stealing the cars.
The stolen vehicles have been returned to their owners.
Lt-Col. Ahmed Saeed Al Nuaimi, Director of the Criminal Investigation Department of Ajman Police, said police conducted an investigation after receiving complaints from the car owners.
“During a search to nab culprits, the police managed to identify a suspect, M.K, residing in Sharjah,” Al Nuaimi said.
M.K. was arrested by operatives at his Sharjah residence. His case has been referred to the public prosecution.
Earlier in May, police nabbed a dozen gang members who stole 83 cars worth a total of Dh6.35 million from various car rental companies in Ajman and other emirates.
Ajman Police said the gang of Arabs and Pakistanis had rented the cars from companies in the UAE and then shipped them to another Arab country.
