ISF returns $50,000 in jewelry to Tripoli shop
A+ A-

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: The Internal Security Forces in Tripoli returned about $50,000 worth of jewelry, cash and mobile phones Sunday after the valuables were recovered from a gang of thieves during a house raid in the Tripoli neighborhood of Abi Samra. 

During the raid, the ISF arrested gang members Abdel-Majid Merhi, Alaa Merhi and Imad Jamous, who are believed to have robbed the home of jeweler Khaled al-Sheikh Othman just four days earlier. 

Othman’s health conditions prevented him from attending the ceremony and receiving his belongings, but Khaled al-Namil, the head of the local Jeweler’s Association, was present on his behalf. 

Namil thanked the ISF for their efforts in pursuing the gang and restoring the stolen items in such a short time.
