DUBAI // A taxi driver stole Dh7,000 worth of a passenger’s goods, a court heard.
Uzbeki A A, 39, took a taxi from the Royal Falcon Hotel in Dubai on October 28.
“I kept my laptop next to me and on the way I asked the driver to stop near a supermarket,” she said.
She wrote down the taxi’s plate number as she walked towards the supermarket in Al Baraha. But when she returned five minutes later, the driver had fled.
Police arrested the driver, who confessed to taking advantage of the woman, leaving the cab and fleeing with her belongings. More info
