Two men suspected of stealing Dh450,000 from a man's car in the Industrial area were arrested.
The victim, a Gulf national, reported the theft to Ajman Police after he found the window of his car broken and the money in his vehicle gone.
"We immediately formed an investigation team to launch a probe and arrest the burglar," said Maj Ahmed Al Nuaimi, Deputy Director of the Criminal Investigation Department at Ajman Police.
Police tracked the suspects to their home using their car plate number.
The arrested men allegedly admitted to breaking into the car and stealing the money.
They also said they transferred the stolen cash to their families in an African country through a third person, who in turn told police they did not know the money was stolen.
One of the men acted as a look-out while the other smashed the car window and stole the money, Maj Al Nuaimi said.
It was not clear when the report and arrests were made or how police found out the suspects' car plate number.
Maj Al Nuaimi urged the public not leave large amounts of cash in their vehicles.
