KUWAIT CITY, Sept 13: A total of 250 robberies in ‘broad daylight’ have been recorded at various police stations in Kuwait during the first eight months of 2017.
According to sources some areas are fertile ground for such crimes due to the lack of security presence — areas such as Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Taima, Khaitan and others. The source explained most of the suspects are jobless persons and others who are already noted criminals.
Most of the crimes are committed after impersonating police targeting the homes of ‘bachelors’. In most cases, the suspects steal money and cell phones and other valuables after threatening to cause them harm. To put an end to this phenomenon, more security measures and the development of an integrated plan are needed by the Interior Ministry in cooperation with the other competent authorities.
