By gna

The Nyinahin Magistrate Court has sentenced a 23-year old unemployed man to nine months imprisonment in hard labour for unlawful entry and stealing.

Anthony Kwadwo pleaded guilty and was convicted on his own plea.

Police Chief Inspector Napoleon Asherow, told the court presided over by Mr. Augustine Essah, that Lydia Serwaa and Dominic Eklu, the complainants, live in the same house at Nyinahin Junction in the Atwima Mponua District of Ashanti.

He said on January 25, 2009, the complainants went out and on their return detected that their two wrist watches, Ghana at 50 hand bands, a National Service ID card, a pair of jeans trousers, a mobile phone and an amount of GH¢24 were missing.

Chief Inspector Asherow said, following this development the two mounted their own investigations and on January 29, Serwaa spotted the accused wearing her missing wrist watch and quickly alerted Eklu.

He said that the two complainants subsequently confronted Anthony Kwadwo and queried him as to how he came about the wrist watch, adding that not satisfied with his explanation the complainants dragged him to the police station.

The Prosecutor stated that during investigations a search was conducted at the room of the accused where the stolen items were retrieved and he was consequently charged with the offence.
