He said one of them gave GH¢60.00 to the witness to buy the phone which turned out to be one of the stolen phones.
A complaint was lodged with the police and Amoah was arrested.
In a caution statement to the police, Amoah mentioned that one Adjetey from Accra gave him the phone to sell, but could not help the police to locate the person.
