Cape Coast, July 18, GNA - A 37 year - old sales consultant was on Wednesday remanded into prison custody by a Cape Coast Circuit court for allegedly stealing and falsifying the accounts of Consumer Finance Company Limited in Cape Coast.
Isaac Kojo Armah allegedly made away with GH¢ 20,000.00.
Armah pleaded not guilty on both counts of stealing and falsification of account and would reappear on Friday August 3.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Charles Anku told the court presided over by Mrs Florence Kai Otu that from 2008 and 2010 the accused was the sales officer of the company.
He said the accused on his daily duties omitted full payment entry of transactions with various customers and succeeded in defrauding them of an amount of GH¢20,000.00.
Chief Inspector Anku said the accused also inflated the figures on monies being requested on loans by customers, which caused irregularities on the accounts data of the customers.
He said when the accounts of the company was audited it came to light that Armah was still transacting business with customers in the name of the company after he had been dismissed.
Chief Inspector Anku said subsequently an announcement was posted in the news papers declaring Armah wanted by police but this did not deter the accused as he continued to transact business in the company's name with customers in Cape Coast, Abura- Dunkwa, Edumfa, Assin Fosu, Ajumako, and Besease.
He said on February 13, the management of the company made a report to the police at the Central Regional Police Headquarters and the accused was arrested whilst transacting business with some customers at Abura- Edumfa.
