A 30 year old driver, Isaac Abban, has been remanded into prison custody by an Accra Circuit Court on charges of stealing and unlawful entry.
He was arrested on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at Achimota near the charcoal station by a team of police officers from the Anti Armed Robbery (AAR) Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters.
ACP Frank Kwofie, CID Director of Operations, said Abban was then in charge of a Mazda saloon car registered as GC 344 Z and loaded with cartons of Nicola sardine.
During interrogation, Abban was not able to tell were the consignment was loaded. He alleged that two passengers who hired his services at Achimota had off loaded the consignment from a taxi cab in to his car en route to Tema Community 1.
But the police doubted his claim and suspected the items might have been stolen from a nearby warehouse. He was therefore arrested and hauled to court, where he was remanded into prison custody to reappear on Thursday, July 26, 2012. The CID Director of Operations appealed to persons who might have had such items stolen from them to call at the Public Affairs Unit of the CID Headquarters to identify and collect their goods.
