The Salwa police have taken into custody a female member of the ruling family, two tomboys and an unidentified youth for robbing people, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily added, the arrest came after police received several complaints from people that they had been looted.
The modus operandi of the suspects was they offered to buy through the social media network branded stuff including watches, handbags, clothes and other items and when the sellers showed up with their goods at a designated spot, the suspects would climb down from their cars, beat the victims and escape with the goods.
The arrest came after police set up a trap and sent an agent to sell them some products. Securitymen reportedly telephoned the Sheikha and a meeting was set in Rumaithiya. When she came to buy the goods she was taken into custody. During interrogation the Sheikha has reportedly admitted to the charge, admitted to committing the crime and led police to her accomplices.
