Burglars leave gloves, masks behind in shop

By Eman Al Baik

Two drunken men allegedly burgled a tailoring shop twice but left behind their gloves and masks during their second break-in, leading to discovery of their identities, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.
On September 23, AM, 36, Iranian salesman, received a call from the watchman of the building in which his shop is located, telling him that the shop has been burgled.

“The watchman noticed that the door was open and that the contents of the cashier’s desk scattered on the floor. I rushed to the shop and found out that money had been stolen.  I called the police who arrived and lifted fingerprints and evidences from the scene,” said the victim.
Police also took the footage of CCTV cameras fixed inside the shop in addition to gloves and masks.
Criminal Evidences reported that the gloves and masks had the DNA of AS, 47, jobless Emirati, and NA, 39, Comoros national, employee.

While police were investigating the theft, the two burgled the same shop on October 19.
The two, who had a similar criminal record, admitted to the crime.
 The court will reconvene on February 9.
