Gold Worth Millions Of Dollars Carted Away In Sharjah Gold Heist


Sharjah Police are hunting for clues to two separate robberies which netted thieves a large quantity of gold.

In the first case, police are probing details of a daring robbery of Diplomat gold workshop in Sharjah on Wednesday around 8pm when a salesman was attacked in the premises and 4.5kg of gold, valued at millions of dirhams was stolen.

Police said the suspect tricked the salesmen, then slashed his face before fleeing the premises in the Al Suer area of Sharjah.

The Criminal Investigation Department discovered the man bleeding when they responded to the call for assistance at the shop.

Forensic experts swept the crime scene for fingerprints.

The injured salesman, meanwhile, was transferred to Al Kuwaiti Hospital for treatment where his condition was described as serious.

The workshop did not have surveillance cameras or an alarm system which made it an easy target for the robbers, police said.
