Police arrest four persons over robbery

31 August 2000 | General News

Airport Police in Accra have arrested three Ghanaians and a Togolese suspected to have broken into a residence at Ashongman Estates in Accra last Sunday and made away with personal effects including television sets, sound systems, video decks, loud speakers and compact disk recorders.

They are Kwashie Mensah, 25, driver from Togo, Moro Ibrahim, 22, loader from Walewale, Kwami Anthony, 29, mason, and Mallam Ibrahim, 25, butcher from Navrongo. According to Superintendent Tim Billa, Police Commander, on August 13, Mrs. Linda Koranteng, who lives at Ashongman Estates, returned from church only to find out that her house had been ransacked and the items stolen. Upon enquires, a neighbour told her that he saw a Toyota Carina taxi cab with registration number GR 8232 Q loaded with electrical gadgets in the vicinity. Mrs. Koranteng therefore reported the matter to the police who mounted surveillance and arrested the driver. Superintendent Billa said, however, that, upon enquiry, the driver said they were two running the vehicle alternatively during day and night. He led the police to the night driver, Kwashie Mensah, who confessed that they have been using the taxi for robbery operations.

Mr. Billa said Kwashie then led them to his house at Akwateiman Zongo in Accra where the other accomplices were arrested and some of the stolen electrical gadgets were found. He advised residents to form neighbourhood watch committees to assist the police to track down criminals. He also warned people who go to church on Sundays not to leave their houses without guards since criminals are likely to strike during such periods
