Muscat: One person has been arrested for impersonating a policeman and then stealing gold and money from two stores.
The Department of Criminal Investigations, led by the Muscat Governorate Police, arrested a defendant for impersonating a police officer and robbery.
A source in the Royal Oman Police said that the defendant "entered two shops pretending to be a police officer inspecting and searching for illegal chewing tobacco."
