“Once we found the purse, we immediately verified the owner’s identity who had already left the country. Nevertheless, our officers contacted her and sent her the purse and cash after taking the necessary legal measures,” Brig Al Ameri said.

He added that Dubai Police is keen to restore rights to their owners and exert all efforts to ensure the happiness of the emirate’s visitors, residents and citizens.
