The Dubai Public Prosecution referred a 22-year-old Asian, a painter’s assistant, to the Criminal Court on the charge of stealing goods valued at Dhs30,000 from a supermarket in Hor Al Anz in Dubai.
In the details, the 45-year-old supermarket manager said he had received a telephone call at 3am on Oct.11, 2016 from the security guard of the supermarket’s building informing him that the back glass of the store was broken.
He reportedly rushed to the spot and after checking, called the police.
