According to Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police, a team of officers was able to apprehend the suspects despite the fact that they had left no traces at the crime site, the Khaleej Times reported.

The stolen things were returned to their proper owners.

According to Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansoori, assistant commander-in-chief for criminal investigation, the gang took advantage of the shop’s insufficient security procedures.

The accused were members of “organized gangs that specialised in robberies,” according to Brigadier-General Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation.

When an Arab guy opened the business at 9 a.m., he discovered that all of the jewellery and watches had gone missing. He phoned the cops right away.
