Dubai Police arrest Asian gang with 3.5 tons of goods

Acting in partnership with Dubai Municipality, police arrested the three drivers who led them to two rooms inside labour accommodation for a contracting company.

Dubai Police have arrested a group of six Asians after seizing 3.5 tons of goods – including food stuffs, tobacco and clothes – which were destined to be sold at various markets across the emirate.

Brigadier Dr. Adel Al-Suwaidi, director of the Jebel Ali Police Station, said they had received a tip-off about three vehicles loaded with a variety of goods.

Acting in partnership with Dubai Municipality, police arrested the three drivers who led them to two rooms inside labour accommodation for a contracting company, where the other three Asians were arrested as they tried to move the haul to another location.

A statement from the police on social media said: “The gang members admitted that they store the goods illegally, without observing any safety requirements for the purpose of selling them in informal, uncivilised markets.”

Brigadier Al-Suwaidi called on members of the public not to buy products that are sold in random markets.
