An Emirati woman who thought her Dh225,000 diamond necklace had been stolen in a villa break-in has been reunited with it.
Sharjah Police say their investigation reached a dead end when they could find no fingerprints or signs of forced entry. But they later discovered the owner of the jewellery had asked a money exchange to store her jewels in their safe while she travelled abroad.
The investigation led police to arrest a suspect who confessed he had returned the box to her empty. Gold jewellery worth a total of Dh347,000 was recovered from a pawnshop.
