Gang 'steals Dh1m in money and jewellery from Sharjah home'

The five men have been arrested

A gang who stole Dh 1 million worth of jewellery, money and watches from a home in Sharjah have been arrested.

Police on Sunday said the five men had targeted a home whose owner was on holiday.

Investigations into the robbery led police to one of the suspects, who they arrested and questioned.

He told them about the four others, of Asian origin, who were involved. He also said he had been called to the house to carry out maintenance work when he realised that the occupants were on holiday. That was when he plotted to rob the house with his accomplices.

The other four suspects were tracked down and arrested and all five were found to have entered the country illegally.
