Kenyan guard in Dubai flees after allegedly stealing Dh5m from a cash transport vehicle

Police in Dubai are looking for a Kenyan man who worked as a security guard in Deira, Dubai.

The man is on the run after stealing Dh5 million from a vehicle that was transporting cash to an ATM at a shopping mall.  According to an official from the company, as reported by Khaleej Times, the man was able to distract other guards before fleeing with the cash at around 10:30 pm on Saturday.

Dubai plays host to thousands of Kenyans who mostly work in the region’s thriving hospitality, transport, and security agencies.
