The 27-year-old Indian worker was charged with stealing the fruits at the Dubai Court of First Instance on Thursday, Gulf News reported.
“I wanted some water and I opened a fruit box and found the mangoes. I ate two mangoes and left,” he said.
“In April 2018, police summoned me and questioned me about the incident. They searched my home and didn’t find any stolen items.”
The total value of the two mangoes is six Dirhams (£1.30).
The case of the two stolen mangoes was solved when an airport security guard saw the defendant open the passengers’ bag on the surveillance cameras.
The verdict is expected on September 23, according to Gulf News. If found guilty, the defendant may face time in jail.
