According to media reports, a man in Dubai stole a newborn camel, and gave it to his girlfriend as a birthday gift. He was later arrested after making a false story about the robbery.
Earlier this month, the owners of the baby camel reported to the local police that their camel was missing.
Talking about how they found the missing camel, Director of Bur Dubai Police Station, Brig Khadim said, “We searched for the baby camel but it disappeared and we were unable to find any evidence. After a few days, a man called claiming that he found the camel in front of his farm. His story wasn’t logical as the the two farms were three kilometres apart and the newborn camel wouldn’t have been able to walk this distance,”
The director further added, “The thief broke into the farm and found the newborn camel. He carried the camel and escaped. The pair didn’t know how to look after the camel and decided to create a fake story of finding the camel.”
Meanwhile, during the interrogation the thief admitted to stealing the baby camel.
The camel has been given back to the owners and the police have arrested the suspect along with his girlfriend on charges of “theft and making a false statement”.
