You can rest assured that you’ve woken up to a slightly safer Jordan this morning.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) caught two criminals on Sunday, one of whom had robbed 15 houses in Amman, while the other carried out seven robberies in Balqa, including stealing two cars and robbing five stores.

The 15-home robber admitted to stealing gold, electronic gadgets and other items from those houses.

Last week, the CID arrested an “extremely dangerous” criminal who had been on the run since 2011.

The fugitive was hiding in the central Badia region and the CID officers seized a weapon from him when they placed him under arrest.

The criminal was wanted on 22 charges.
