American charged with Dubai handcuff theft jailed

Adam Foster says he found the handcuffs in a shopping mall parking lot.



Dubai: A Dubai court has slapped a one-month jail sentence on an American man on charges that he stole a pair of police handcuffs.

A judge in the city-state`s misdemeanour court read out the sentence in Adam Foster`s case on Thursday.

Foster`s lawyer Yousuf Hammad had urged the court to accept a lesser charge of finding and failing to report lost property, and had also argued for leniency.

The 30-year-old Foster says he found the handcuffs in a shopping mall parking lot.

Hammad said he is still waiting for court papers to be filed to get details of the court`s reasoning.
