Dubai Police Video: How to Catch a Thief

The early part of the video shows two men walking suspiciously around a parked Bentley in Abu Dhabi. They opened the door and grabbed a bag filled with cash — amounting to AED 1.5 million — then got inside a getaway car, which started fleeing towards Dubai.

Abu Dhabi Police received information about the theft and immediately alerted Dubai Police about the getaway car. Upon reaching Jumeirah, the car was pursued by police patrols then stopped along Al Wasl road. The suspects were caught, and the stolen money was recovered.
