Burglars gang of 5 women busted in sting operation [Arab Times (Kuwait)]
(Arab Times (Kuwait) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) KUWAIT CITY, Aug 15: The Criminal Investigation Department has closed the file of a gang of five women (Omanis and a bedoun) who were accused of stealing gold jewelry from two shops in Salhiya and Salmiya, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. The daily added, police received information that five women who had a child with them had committed the theft inside a jewelry shop in Salhiya.
According to reports the women committed the theft when the salesman was busy. However, police failed to arrest them because the data system did not have their fingerprints even for the child. At the same time another jewelry shop was robbed in Salmiya and the modus operandi was the same. The police then succeeded in arresting the gang by creating an account on the social networking website Instagram and displayed everything attractive to women.
The account could also be used to purchase whatever they want. When the gang fell for the trap they saw the picture of the child who was with them in the shop and compared the photos on the Instagram with the CCTV footage of the shops. The police have arrested them and interrogations are underway to arrest the rest of the gang members.
Meanwhile, police are looking for two armed men for breaking into and attempting to steal the contents of a school inside the Khairan housing area, reports Al-Shahed daily. The daily added, the arrest came after a Syrian man informed the Operations Department of the Ministry of Interior. Acting on information police rushed to the spot and closed the gate of the school to prevent the suspects escaping in their vehicle. And, the Jahra police have arrested an unidentified Egyptian man who was wanted by law for failing to pay KD 1,452 to a mobile telecommunications company, reports Al-Anba daily. He has been handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department
