Generator thieves arrested
Ahmadi detectives solved the mystery of the theft of power generators from camps after they arrested a bedoon, two Egyptians and an Iraqi, in addition to a prisoner in the central prison. Police received complaints that generators were being stolen. Detectives then learned about a bedoon, who confessed to several thefts and told them about a partner who is serving a jail sentence, and an Egyptian who bought what they stole. The Egyptian said he sold three generators to people he did not know, then told them about another Egyptian and an Iraqi. Detectives found 34 power generators with the second Egyptian. The Iraqi was caught with two generators. All four were sent to concerned authorities. – Translated from the Arabic press
