Ban On Rubber Guns Still In Force - Police

The Accra Regional Police Command yesterday reminded traders and the public that laws banning the importation of rubber guns still existed and that they should ensure its compliance.
A release signed by Inspector Kwaku Dompreh of the Public Affairs Department said reports indicated that some traders still traded in the commodity, which some robbers used in robbing people of their valuables and cars.
'This is because some of these toy rubber guns have been retrieved from recovered vehicles,' he added.
It said the Police Command would soon embark on an exercise to inspect all shops in the metropolis and anybody found with such items would be arrested and prosecuted.
The statement also called on those who sold sharp objects such as forks, scissors, screwy drivers, cutlasses among others in traffic to stop since they could be arrested.
