Four gangs of international car criminals have been arrested after stealing 46 high end motors from around the UAE.

The cars, which include a Rolls Royce and a Bentley, are valued at AED 11 million. Investigating officers discovered 17 of the cars at a port in the UAE. A further 13 cars were hidden in shipping containers at a warehouse in Al Aweer and four were even being used to ferry the thieves about.

After the Data Analysis Center at the Dubai Police monitored car thefts in the UAE and realised organised gangs were coming into the emirates on visit visas with a mission to steal, they began tracking the criminals. Using the latest technology, thieves would override the cars’ computers and smuggle them out of the country.

The force’s Criminal Investigation Department worked with Sharjah and Ajman police stations to track down the gang members, who have all been referred to Dubai’s public prosecutor.
