    The recovered stolen money

    10 Cameroonians were arrested in Dubai for robbing Dh3.6 Million(610Million FRS) from a money exchange office on February 15th. They acted as investors and scammed an Arab man. This is what happened as reported by GULF NEWS:

    Major-General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said on February 15 the police received a call about a robbery at a hotel at Muraqabbat area.

    “He was a trusted customer and the exchange officials knew him, so they sent three Asian employees who brought the money in bags. When the employees and the businessman entered the room, the gang attacked them and used tape to muzzle them and tied their hands and legs before stealing the money,” Major-General Al Mansouri said.

    The suspects fled the hotel with the money.

    A cleaner who was checking the room, found the four men and informed the police.
    The police launched a major hunt and managed to identify the men before arresting them in a neighbouring emirate.

    Another suspect was arrested while trying to leave the country.
    However, three suspects had left the country to Oman, and Dubai Police arrested them in cooperation with Omani police authority. They were caught with Dh100,000 and the rest of the money

    “It was a hard task for Dubai Police as the Arabic businessman didn’t know they were a gang and he thought they were investors. He made a mistake by transferring the money to a hotel room without using a proper transportation company to secure the money,” Maj General Al Mazroui added.

    The ten suspects will be referred to Dubai Public Prosecution.
