Dental worker in Dubai sentenced to three months for theft of Dh55,000 laser machine

She initially denied the theft, but later confessed to putting the device in her handbag and leaving the clinic.

A 43-year-old dental clinic worker has been given a suspended three-month prison sentence for stealing a laser machine, worth Dh55,000, from her employee.

JM, from the Philippines, worked at the Dental Centre in Dubai when the machine went missing in June this year.

Police were told they suspected JM had taken it because she was the last person to leave the clinic that night.

She initially denied the theft, but later confessed to putting the device in her handbag and leaving the clinic.
