A Sekondi magistrate court has sentenced Yaw Kudagari, a 20-year-old unemployed, to six months imprisonment in hard labour for stealing a mobile phone valued at 200 Ghana cedis.
He pleaded guilty.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Richard Boatey old the court that Kudagari visited Mr Prosper Negle on October 29 and stole the phone placed on a refrigerator.
He said when Mr Negle detected that the phone had been stolen he asked the convict if he taken it but he denied knowledge of it.
When Kudagari's room was searched the phone was found in a bag and he was arrested and handed over to the police.
Mr Boatey said the accused admitted the offence in his caution statement.
