The Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Effia Tenge, told DGN online that the Weija police arrested the suspect on April 19, around 2pm along the Bortianor Road.
She said the complainant, who is a car dealer, reported to the Weija police that he received a call from the suspect that he was interested in buying the vehicle which is a Toyota Yaris with registration number GR8 3022-19 which was being offered for sale.
