3 Robbers Busted

Three out of four armed robbers who broke into several homes and stole belongings including vehicles and were transporting them to Togo to sell have been busted.

The suspects are Jerry Danquah, 25, driver; David Asare, 26, shoe seller; and Isaac Donkor, aka Kofi Nyakamago, 27, weaver. The fourth, one Dauda, the kingpin, is currently at large.

Police investigations have since led to the retrieval of two vehicles, including a Toyota Hilus with registration number ER 3158-11 and a Toyota Land Cruiser with number GT 4727-09.

Briefing the media, DCOP Christian Tetteh Yohuno, the Accra Regional Police Commander, said around 2:15am on October 4, 2015, the four young men, armed with a pump action gun, broke into a house at New Bortianor, a suburb of Accra, and attacked the first victim.

They subjected the victim to severe beatings before finally tying him with a flying tie.

The suspects then made away with items including an HP laptop, an Ipad, a Samsung phone and a set of jewelleries.

They also stole an amount of GH¢600 from the victim.

Not satisfied, the suspects demanded the keys to the victim’s Toyota Hilus Pick-up parked on the compound and drove it away with their booty.

With the help of a car tracking device fixed to the vehicle, police, upon receiving the complaint, intercepted the vehicle at Chopoli Barrier on the Sogakope road.

The suspects were immediately arrested and upon interrogation, it came to light that Dauda offered his taxicab with registration number GE 8860-11 for the operation but failed to accompany them to Sogakope for the sale of the vehicle and the stolen items.

Further investigations revealed that the same suspects on September 19, 2015 around 1:30am attacked an accountant at his residence at Atta Moses Down, a suburb of Weija.

The suspects gained access to the apartment and at knifepoint robbed the victim of several items and also made away with his Toyota Land Cruiser V8 4X4 vehicle.

While escaping with the vehicle, the suspects were involved in an accident at Denu and were arrested.

They were taken to Denu court by the MTTU and were fined an amount of GH¢700 by the court.

They quickly paid the money and demanded for their vehicle.

Police then demanded for the documents covering the vehicle but since the suspects could not produce documents to the vehicle, they left and never returned to the station until their arrest.

The two vehicles have since been retrieved in addition to the items stolen.
