The court was told the 33-yearold man gained ac­cess to the pri­vate prop­erty in Jumeirah af­ter climb­ing the villa gate and break­ing the locks of the main door with sharp tools. The thieves got away with two watches worth Dh48,000 and other jew­ellery in­clud­ing bracelets, ear­rings and neck­laces, worth Dh20,600.

He de­nied, in the court, the charges of forced rob­bery at night with the use of sharp tools, dam­age of pri­vate prop­erty and tres­pass.

The in­ci­dent was re­ported on Fe­bru­ary 16, 2017, at Bur Dubai po­lice sta­tion.

“We nabbed the de­fen­dant af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­li­able in­for­ma­tion he that was in­volved in the rob­bery,” said a po­lice sergeant.

“We brought him to the Gen­eral Direc­torate of Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion, where he will­ingly con­fessed to the break-in and rob­bery. He said they en­tered the villa in Jumeirah around 2am af­ter break­ing the main door. They sold the stolen jew­ellery later in Shar­jah.”

The sergeant told the pros­e­cu­tor that the tai­lor ad­mit­ted to raid­ing other res­i­dences at night time in the same area us­ing sharp tools. The ac­cused led the po­lice of­fi­cers to the villa from where they robbed the jew­ellery.
