Six Saudis arrested for robbing medicines

The police here have busted a six-member gang of Saudi nationals and recovered stolen medicines from them.

The suspects, all in their 30s, arrested after establishing their role in robbing medicines from three clinics in the city, police claimed.

Lt. Col. Hussein Al-Qahtani, spokesman for the Medina Police, also said the gang members stole an unknown quantity of medicines from three clinics in Madinah neighborhoods.

The gang members, he said, had disposed of some of the drugs before their arrest.

All the suspects have been referred to the Public Prosecution pending further investigation and trial, Col. Al-Qahtani said.
