The man broke into an apartment in City Walk.
The Dubai Police caught a thief who flew to the emirate to rob a safe inside an apartment in City Walk.
A video released by Dubai Police on Instagram showed how the authorities tracked his every move from the moment he arrived at the airport. Upon arrival, he goes straight to a store to buy some equipment to use in the theft.
The man arrives at a hotel and books two nights. The following day – October 8, 2019 he leaves the hotel to perform the theft. He takes a bag carrying his equipment. He also wore an abaya to conceal his identity. The man takes a cab towards City Walk where he breaks into an apartment and starts to tamper with the safe inside the room.
Inside the apartment, the burglar carries the safe into one of the bathrooms where he pours chemicals on the safe to disable the alarm. With the alarm disabled, he starts to crack it open using a drill that he bought locally.
CCTV footage from the apartment building show him escaping with the money and taking it back to his hotel room but not before he stops by a clothes shop to get rid of his disguise.
Dubai Police nabbed him after he was suspected of carrying stolen goods. The suspense-filled turn of events can be seen in the clip below.
