UAE phone shop robbed twice in 9 days

Three Asians robbed a mobile phones shop in Naif area for a second time in nine days, while police were investigating the first robbery, Dubai Criminal Court heard on Tuesday.

The first robbery took place on September 29 last year when three Afghans used screwdrivers to smash the lock of the shop’s glass door and made away with mobile phones worth Dh29,000.

Nine days later, on the night of October 8, they returned to the same shop and stole phones worth Dh19,000.

The three suspects, upon arrest, confessed to police that there were others involved in the crime and that they only got a share of Dh6,000 each for the robbery committed. The loot was sold, the suspects added.

Meanwhile, the Dubai police officer in charge of the case testified in court that a security team was formed to nab the culprits after receiving a complaint from the Indian shop owner.

The police officer explained that their search continued to until cops in Ras Al Khaimah alerted them that they had arrested the three suspects.

The suspects allegedly continued with similar crimes in Ras Al Khaimah.

Court will issue verdict on October 27.
