A Kumasi Circuit Court has sentenced a 26-year- old trader to five years imprisonment for stealing a television set at Kronum-Kwapra in the Suame Municipality in the Ashanti Region.
Abdul Musah pleaded guilty and was convicted on his own plea.
Police Chief Inspector Joseph Debrah told the court presided over by Mr Alibaba Bature that on September 30 this year, at about 1:30am, the convict broke into the room of the complainant at Kronum-Kwapra and took the television set.
He said the complainant who was awakened by the noise from the thief raised an alarm and with the help of co-tenants, arrested the convict and handed him over to the police.
Chief Inspector Debrah said in his caution statement, the convict admitted the offence and was therefore charged and brought before the court.
