DUBAI: Dubai Customs officials have arrested a gang of Georgian nationals while they attempted to smuggle huge quantity of gold jewellery and valuable watches outside the country.
They were trying to smuggle out 1.5kg of gold ornaments and expensive watches hidden in their undergarments, according to officials. One of them looked nervous as he passed through the security check at Terminal Two, which prompted officials to watch him closely.
He was taken to a private room for thorough check after the metal detector beeped. Some gold and a few expensive watches were seized from him. Later, CCTV footages showed he had entered with two other men. It was discovered that the valuables were distributed among the gang.
