And with the glitz comes...

It's a sad comment on human society that growth and development inevitably brings increased crime.

ATM in Ajman hit by daylight armed robbery

By Bassma Al Jandaly, Staff Reporter

Ajman: Ajman police are hunting for four robbers who shot and injured a security guard and stole thousands of dirhams in a daring daylight robbery in the city centre on Saturday.
Police said the incident occurred at 3:40pm in a busy area when security personnel were preparing to load cash into a bank ATM.

Gulf News

We had the Currency Exchange heist. The jewellery shops in, if I remember correctly, Wafi Mall, being cleaned out. The Mexican Bandits raiding villas. Organised Crime seems to have arrived. What a sad thing that is for a country that was once so safe and, relatively, crime free.

A sign of the times and, I'm afraid, a glimpse into the future.
