Heist men in Dubai

Everyone in Dubai is talking about the sensational jewellery store armed robbery on Sunday, because things like that never happen in Dubai. Armed robbers in two cars, rammed into the glass walls of the elite Wafi mall, and stole jewellery worth US$ 13 million at gun point from Graff Jewellers. All in less than 2 minutes. Stolen cars, masked robbers, machine guns, missing jewels, it was just like the movies. Except that it happened right here in Dubai!!

I liked the report in yesterday's Gulf News which said: "Robbers finished their task in 1 minute and 45 seconds and police arrived in 3 minutes..." Wonder who was recording the robbery in a stopwatch with so much precision!!

Radha said...

well, they have it all on the security camera!!

Optimistic Guard said...

Yeah very well planned and executed, the video and the pictures sure make it should like one of those high profile jobs from the Hollywood movies.
