6 Pakistanis arrested for gold robbery worth SR 10.6 million

The Riyadh Police got into action after they received a complaint from a gold Shop. According to the complaint, the Yemeni employee of the gold shop was kidnapped. The gang of six people had kidnapped him and dragged him into the car.

He was taken to the gold shop and was forced to open it up. The gang robbed the shop and escaped in a car with gold worth SR 10.6 million.

A special task force was formulated for this complaint. Upon investigation, it was revealed that the gang consisted of 6 men, all holding Pakistani nationality.

The six men used a rented car for the purpose of robbery. They were able to rent a vehicle based on fake documents.

The Riyadh police caught the six Pakistani men. Interestingly, two were going on the final exit after spending a reasonable amount of time in Saudi Arabia.

Before their final exit, they decided to try their luck with criminal activities. 

They were to use cargo services to deliver the stolen goods to Pakistan. They had almost made all the arrangements at the Jeddah and Riyadh’s sea cargo office. They must have run away with the stolen goods if they weren’t caught on time.

According to the police spokesperson, the gang has confessed that they had stolen jewelry worth SR 5 million from a previous robbery at a jewelry store.

When police investigated their cargo packaging, they discovered 1,225 mobile sets. These were the new portable sets they had stolen from a telecommunication company. These devices had a worth of SR 600,000. The machines are in the custody of the police.

The gang of six has been arrested, yet the punishment they have received is still not made public.
