Dubai airport worker steals two mangoes, lands in court – News

He said he had been thirsty and was looking for water.

A luggage worker based at the Dubai International Airport faced trial at the Court of First Instance on Thursday on a theft charge.

The 27-year-old Indian worker is accused of stealing two mangoes (worth about Dh6) from the baggage of a traveller on August 11, 2017.

The defendant, who is referred to as a public employee in the public prosecution charge sheet, confessed to the theft.

During interrogation and prosecution investigation, the accused recounted that he had been working at Terminal 3 of the airport. His duties included loading travellers’ luggage onto the conveyer belt from the container and vice-versa.

He confessed that on August 11, 2017, he stole two pieces of mangoes from a fruit box that was to be shipped to India as he was thirsty and looking for water.

In April 2018, the police summoned and interrogated him about the incident. He was arrested and his place was searched, but no stolen items were found there.

A security officer said he saw the worker on warehouse CCTV cameras opening the Dubai-India travellers’ luggage and stealing.

A ruling will be pronounced on September 23.
