The Fake gold
The arrest of the four suspects was reported by the Public Affairs Officer at the Accra Regional Police Headquarters, Deputy Police Superintendent, Mrs. Effia Tenge.
Kueey is said to have arranged and visited the American for a gold sales exchange at the Palace Chinese Restaurant, Dzorwulu.
Nubin and his accomplices appeared at the restaurant where the two met and were negotiating the contract, and confronted the American with a kilo of yellowish metal which he believed was gold.
The American made a $20,000 partial payment and then sent images of the metal suspected of being gold to a gold dealer who claimed it was false.
The suspects took to their heels and boarded a waiting Toyota Corolla saloon car with registration number GW 3441-15, which was parked in front of the restaurant and sped off with the silver, seeing that the American had detected that the gold was fake.
The American called for assistance and the American was aided to chase the criminals by a decent Samaritan driving a Pontiac Vibe saloon sedan.
