DUBAI: The Dubai Crim­i­nal Court on Thurs­day charged a 23-year-old Asian with pre­med­i­tat­edly set­ting ire to nine cars, caus­ing losses of Dhs800,000, in two sep­a­rate cases, us­ing the same modus operandi.

The sus­pect con­fessed to the irst crime, in­sti­gated by another per­son for Dhs600.

He con­sumed al­co­hol and, con­niv­ing with fugi­tives, poured petrol on a ve­hi­cle and set ire to it, which spread to other ve­hi­cles.

A po­lice­man told the Dubai Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion he ar­rested the sus­pect who con­fessed to the crime and other sim­i­lar crimes.

The po­lice­man added he was tasked to col­lect ev­i­dence and later he ar­rested the sus­pect who guided him to the place of the cars he had burned.

In the sec­ond case, in­ves­ti­ga­tion proved the sus­pect com­mit­ted another sim­i­lar crime, by set­ting ire to a truck, which spread to two oth­ers, caus­ing dam­age worth Dhs522,000.
