She used the credit card found in the wallet to buy some cosmetics. The victim received an SMS regarding it and alerted the bodies concerned about her stolen wallet and credit card.

The RAK Police launched an investigation and tracked down the suspect using the CCTV cameras at the said clinic and pharmacy.

The accused was arrested and referred to the RAK Public Prosecution, which charged her with theft.

The RAK Criminal Court convicted the woman and sentenced her to one year in prison, followed by deportation.
