Suspect was in need for money before he stole the cylinder and sold it for Dh100

Dubai,November 17 – A security guard has been accused of stealing a gas cylinder from a construction site and selling it, heard a court on Thursday.

An Egyptian manager at a construction company was said to have discovered that the gas cylinder was stolen from a special room built for security guards at a construction site in Naif.

Police were alerted about the theft before further on-site investigations revealed that the 21-year-old Pakistani security guard had stolen the cylinder during his night shift in October.

Prosecutors accused the suspect of stealing a Dh350 worth of gas cylinder from the site.

When the suspect showed up before the Dubai Court of First Instance on Thursday, he pleaded guilty.

He contended before presiding judge Urfan Omar that he stole the cylinder and sold it because he needed money.

The Egyptian manager told prosecutors that the suspect was on duty the same evening when the cylinder was stolen.

“It was discovered that the gas cylinder was missing from the guards’ room at the site. Upon questioning, the suspect admitted that he stole the cylinder and sold it to a neighbouring store for Dh100,” the manager told prosecutors.

The suspect also told prosecutors that he stole the cylinder.

A ruling in the case will be heard on November 27.
