On Sunday, October 10, the Ghana Police Service’s Accra Regional Command stopped a robbery attempt in Oyibi, a suburb of Accra, resulting in the arrest of two offenders.
By chiseling through the fence wall, prime suspect Richard Narh, 45, gained access to his victim’s home.
The suspect smashed out the kitchen burglar-proof window and gained entrance to the main building, according to a news statement from the Command.
When one inhabitant saw him enter the room, he assaulted him.
It was then that the police received a distress call and “approached the scene, overpowered and arrested suspect Richard Narh”.
“Upon his arrest, the Police retrieved 2 Mobile Phones, 1 Apple tablet, and some other valuables,” the press release on Monday said.
“Suspect Richard Narh mentioned suspect Karimu Seidu as the one who buys his stolen booty anytime he goes to steal. He led the police to arrest him at his hideout in Nima.
“Police investigation revealed that suspect Richard Narh, imploring the same modus [operandi] had been involved in other break-ins within the region and had been caught on surveillance cameras.”
Investigations have begun and the two will be arraigned before court soon.
