Two men who boldly entered the room of a policeman at the Central Police Barracks in Accra and made away with his property have been arraigned before an Accra Magistrate’s court.
Charles Oduro, 18, and Thomas Tainvia, 27, who were charged with conspiracy to commit crime, unlawful entry and stealing pleaded guilty on all three counts.
They were subsequently bailed in the sum of GH¢300 each or in default serve one month each in prison.
Presenting the facts of the case to the court, presided over by Mr James Kojo Bota, Sergeant Lois Konadu said on April 7, 2016 at 10:30p.m, the police Sergeant, Karim Braimah, who had closed from duty upon returning home shut his door to attend to nature’s call.
Oduro and Tainvia who were then passing by and noticed that Braimah had left the room, entered and picked his Laptop, tablet, phone, an external drive and a pen drive and bolted.
Prosecutor Konadu said Oduro and Tainvia took the stolen items to Agbogbloshie to sell but luck eluded them when the person they offered to sell the items to was the wife of the late brother of Braimah, Adwoa Mansa.
According to her, Adwoa Mansah called Braimah to enquire if he had lost some items. With this knowledge the culprits were arrested and the items retrieved.
