Two discharged for stealing

The Madina Magistrate Court, presided over by Mr Ernest K. A. Adjanor, has acquitted and discharged Mawuli Alordey and Kwame Anim on charges of conspiracy and stealing.

However, Alordey was convicted by the same court on the charge of assault and was fined GH¢360 or in default serve four months in prison with hard labour.

According to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Patience Mario, the complainant, Mr John Tetteh, is a businessman who lives at Madina and owns a second-hand goods and cassette shop at the Madina taxi rank.

DSP Mario said Alordey and Anim also lived in the same area.

The prosecutor said on December 9, 2010 at about 9pm, Mr Tetteh left his desktop computer in front of his shop to remove an amplifier from a nearby container for another customer.

However, the prosecutor said, when Mr Tetteh came to pick the desktop computer, it was nowhere to be found.

DSP Mario said Mr Tetteh was later informed by a witness that he saw Alordey and Anim carrying the computer away.

According to DSP Mario, Mr Tetteh later met Alordey and when he questioned him about the computer, he got offended and assaulted him. 

DSP Mario said Mr Tetteh, therefore, lodged a complaint with the police and Alordey and Anim were arrested and the computer retrieved from Anim.
