Is it true?

Wafi robbery arrests
Police have arrested three people in connection with the Dh50m jewellery raid on a store at Dubai's Wafi City shopping mall earlier this month.

That's on the Gulf News website Home Page. Click to read the full story and you get:

The requested article cannot be found,
it may have been moved during our recent website re-launch.

I won't comment until it's confirmed or denied, but that's what the website is saying at 2pm Dubai time.

It's working here;
I like this part...

"Police also said the robbers, who were part of an international gang, used a plastic gun during the heist."

I could hear clear gunshots in the video; listen at about 9 seconds in

I also love that the value of diamonds has gone from 50 million down to 14 million

here a link to the GN article is: http://gulfnews.com/nation/Police_and_The_Courts/10121716.html

Even plastic guns can sound similar to real gunshots samuraisam

Yes anonymous, I'm sure a cap gun has the ability to make a sound loud enough to be picked up several dozen feet away from its source using a piece of crap nokia camera phone microphone.
