He decided to monitor the place and installed a surveillance camera near the place where he used to keep his wallet.
On the day of the incident, he noticed that Dhs200 was stolen from his wallet, so he checked the surveillance camera on his phone and saw that his workmate opening the closet they both shared at work, stealing the money and then keeping back the wallet in the closet.
