There’s no denying that dogs are a man’s best friend, but they do much more than hanging out with us! A canine just helped Dubai Police unravel an AED 1.8 million-worth drug heist at the Jebel Ali port.
AED 1.8 billion-worth of drugs found by Dubai Police dog
Pule 2, a Labrador who’s been working with Dubai Police for seven years, roamed around the Jebel Ali port until he passed by an electric cable drum. He barked and refused to leave. Seeing his behaviour, Dubai Police decided to track the shipment, which was being sent to Sharjah.

Shipment belonged to a 70-year-old person
Dubai Police discovered the client was a 70-year-old living in Sharjah and receives Dhs 2,000 per month from a charity organization. A total of four suspects were caught in the heist and are part of an international drug ring.
Drugs stored inside electric cable drums
After catching the suspects, Dubai Police unravelled the drugs were stored inside the drums of the electric cables, taking four days to open the reel. The gang has been sentenced to imprisonment as of now.
