the defendants allegedly broke into the school’s administration wing and forced open the window of the accounting office. they then broke open the safe and stole the money and cheques.

they used tools to break the safe desk drawers door and window and caused damage worth more than dh3300.

a police lieutenant said they arrested the accused around 2pm on november 19 last year from a flat in sharjah. sums of money were seized from them. gloves masks and tools like screw driver hammer and scissors were found in their rented car.

the rental agency which owned the car had equipped it with a gps tracking system and they provided the investigators the path the car had taken on the day of the incident. it showed that the car was parked outside the school after midnight on the day.

the school’s surveillance camera footage showed the men entering the school at 12.28am and heading towards the accounting office.
