Asian cleaner steals Dh39,200 from Dubai shopping mall ATM

A 31-year-old Bangladeshi cleaner has been accused of stealing Dh39,200 from an ATM, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

A bank customer tried to deposit some amount via an ATM machine in a shopping mall but could not complete the process due to technical error in the machine.

The customer approached the bank and reported the issue.

?Reviewing the camera footage, we saw RM inserted his hand in the machine next day morning and pulled out some cash. He is supposed to inform the administration and hand over the amount,? a manager at the bank told investigators.

After confronting him, the cleaner admitted to stealing the amount.

The accused admitted of possessing Dh5,600 at the time of investigations.
