Jewellery stolen from school safe
Three men are accused of breaking into a school and stealing gold and jewellery worth Dhs100,000 and Dhs150,000 in cash. Dubai Court of First Instance heard the two Yemenis and an Egyptian robbed the school’s safe, stealing cash and the jewellery, which belonged to a 45-year-old accountant. He had permission from the management to keep his valuables in the safe. Prosecutors said that, in May last year, the Yemenis, aged 29 and 50, the 55-year-old Egyptian and a fourth suspect, who is at large, broke into the school. A policeman told prosecutors the suspects had been involved in a similar heist before. He said: “During the interrogation, the suspects confessed. Two of them stayed outside to keep watch while the other two broke into the school... Some of the stolen jewellery was recovered at the Yemenis’ residence in Ajman.” Judge Fahad Al Shamsi adjourned the case.
