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.
