Default Crime Free Dubai...

Crikey. I thought I'd woken up in Gateshead when I heard the news on the radio this morning.

I particularly like the bit where the police say that the criminals are "unlikely to be of Arab origin".

hey you nowt wrong with Gatesheed!!! not the first jewellers to be done in Wafi, Mahallati was done over about 4 years ago. They must be daft nicking graff diamonds though, each one has a hologram type thing inside of it and will be traced.

I thought I was in sunderland when i lived in Satwa, went to the shops in husbands car and returned to find my VW golf on bricks minus it's alloy wheels. Even the police thought it was funny!!!

Was down in Abu Dhabi today, this morning roads out of Dubai had police road blocks, I presume to catch the thieves who are likely to go to bed after the robbery. Then leave Dubai when they wake up 10 hours later.

You can still hope - they've recovered only 14 million. They made the arrests a couple of days back, wonder why they waited till today to make the announcement

I went throught that road block...bloody good idea...maybe they thought the thieves were very old and needed a nap after all that running and driving before they left Dubai - using a main road, carrying the jewels in their car like the clever thieves they are
