SHARJAH – Three people have been arrested for breaking into the home of a businessman in Sharjah and stealing Dh660,000 from his safe.
Sharjah Police said the break-in happened on June 25 and that the suspects knew about the safe in the home.
Brigadier Ibraheem Al Ajel, Sharjah Police’s Director of the Criminal Investigation Department, said that investigators narrowed down a list of suspects who were recently in contact with the victim.
“Investigators worked non-stop according to a theory that whoever stole the safe must have met the victim recently and knew he kept his safe at home,” Al Ajel said.
Two prime suspects were arrested within 24 hours of the crime. Police said the duo admitted to their role in the burglary and also told police about the involvement of a third suspect.
Meanwhile, Al Ajel urged homeowners to refrain from leaving large sums of money at home, saying it is a “big mistake” that makes one’s home a “target for thieves”.
