Seems like there is nothing thieves enjoy than devising new means of robbing people of their possessions.
Policemen in Ajman, United Arab Emirates, arrested two African men for robbery and pickpocketing, recently.
According to the police, their modus operandi (mode of operation), involved spitting on their victims and stealing from them while their partner pretends to help the victim rub off the spit.
The director of the Criminal and Investigation Department of the Ajman police, Colonel Abdullah Saif Al Matroushi, said:
“Spitting on people on the road and stealing their money is a new ploy being employed by thieves in Ajman. The whole operation takes only a few minutes as the victim would be busy cleaning himself.”

The suspects were arrested while trying to rob someone in a shop, and were paraded. They said they chose this mode of operation because it was easy to do. They also admitted to have stolen about Dh56,000 (about N4,836,700) since they began operations.
