The Jeddah region police arrested an Egyptian expat earlier this year for collecting funds and transferring them illegally outside the Kingdom, using a commercial company as a cover.
As a result of the resident expat's report of a theft of 3,000 riyals by a Yemeni national and a citizen, the security authorities investigated. After intervening in the matter, the authority determined that the stolen amount was 350,000 riyals, which contradicted what he said in his report.
Authorities reported that the three were arrested, legal measures were taken against them, and they were referred to the Public Prosecution.
