Colonel Ahmed Saeed Al Nuaimi, Director of the Criminal Investigation Department, said that an investigation was launched after the Al Hamidiyah Police Station received a tip-off about a warehouse that was used for the production, storage and distribution of fake car oils and lubricants.

A special investigative team raided the facility in the New Industrial Area, and seized large quantities of counterfeit oils.

Further investigations revealed that the suspect was also involved in a previous case filed at the city police station.
