Security officers in the Eastern Province have arrested two young expatriate women who allegedly stole a car from Al-Khobar and drove off.
The car was parked in Al-Aqrabiah district with its engine running. The Arab women were apprehended in the Abqaiq governorate late Friday night, said Eastern Province Police spokesman Col. Ziyad Al-Reqaiti.
He said a Saudi called the operations room saying his car was stolen when he went to a restaurant to pick up some food.
Police immediately circulated a description of the vehicle.
A patrol team spotted it in Abqaiq with only two women inside, apparently one of them driving. The two women were arrested and handed over to Al-Thuqbah police station.
The case has been referred to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution.
