Three men are in Police grips for allegedly stealing 9 cows at Tongo Baare in the Talensi-Nabdam District of the Upper East Region.
The men were arrested on the dawn of Sunday October 16 around 1:30 am at Bukere, a suburb of Bolgatanga, where they had approached a cattle farmer offering to sell the stolen cows for GH¢1,000, which was rather cheap considering the market price of about GH¢3,600.
The cattle farmer became suspicious in view of the price at which the three were offering the cattle; so he called in the Police who arrested the men.
A son of the owner of the stolen cattle, Mba Ante, who spoke to DAILY GUIDE at Bolgatanga, said his father found out a few days ago that the number of cattle in his ranch had reduced and immediately mounted a search for them in the area and in nearby communities.
A source close to the Police said one of the suspects was a native of Bolgatanga.
