7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Shar­jah Crim­i­nal Court has jailed two fe­male bur­glars for six months and or­dered they be de­ported af­ter serv­ing their sen­tence. The Le­banese women (pic­tured), in their 30s, broke into apart­ments in the emi­rate and stole cash and valu­ables. Po­lice said they re­ceived in­for­ma­tion about a string of thefts in which mostly cash, gold jew­ellery, mo­bile phones and other ex­pen­sive items were taken. They man­aged to iden­tify the two women in Fe­bru­ary and tracked them to their res­i­dence, though they did not state where the pair lived. Of­fi­cers raided the apart­ment and more than Dhs400,000 worth of goods were found. Po­lice said that, when ques­tioned, the sus­pects con­fessed they had tar­geted flats while their oc­cu­pants were on hol­i­day. How­ever, the sus­pects de­nied the charges in court sev­eral times. Po­lice urged the pub­lic to lock their doors and to make sure their valu­ables are se­cure.
