A restaurant guard in Dubai has been jailed after he stole AED430,000 using a toy gun as a weapon.
The 31-year-old African guard threatened to kill the restaurant manager while holding the toy gun as he went to collect his monthly salary. He then stole a bag containing AED430,000 from the restaurant’s accountant and fled the scene.
Dubai Police tracked him down where he was found with AED21,000 on him. He later confessed that he’d sent the rest of the money back to his family.
He’s been sentenced to one year in jail followed by deportation.
