Fatal crash

A citizen was
killed and three were injured during a collision between a dump truck and a car
on Rehayya road in Jahra, Al-Rai reported. Police, paramedics and firemen
responded and worked on freeing the deceased, as the injured were taken to
hospital. The body was recovered by the coroner.


An alleged thief
deployed a new method to steal phones and computers from the cars of company
representatives he contacted online to deliver goods he ordered, and gave them
addresses that do not belong to him. He opened their cars without having to
break in, and used phone numbers registered in the names of deported expats.
The affected companies complained to police and said that cars' contents were
stolen without any signs of breaking in, reported Al-Rai.

Detectives found
the thief used to select buildings in suitable locations, then gave the
building's number, floor and flat number and to companies who take orders
online and accept payment on delivery. He then waited for the deliveryman to go
inside the building. He then opened the delivery vehicle and stole its
contents. They found he stole 12 mobile phones and two computers.
Investigations are ongoing to arrest him.


Firemen and
policemen brought a citizen, who was in an abnormal condition, under control
after he set his family house on fire and locked them in. Police received a
call about a fire in a Saad Al-Abdullah house, so firemen were dispatched
there. A man appeared with a knife, and when asked to make way to put out the
fire, especially since the family was locked inside, he refused in a manner
that showed he was not in a normal condition. He was brought under control and
the fire was put out without injuries, Al-Rai reported.
