The Eastern Regional Police Command has arrested two persons in connection with a series of carjacking incidents at Suhum in the Eastern Region.
The two, Kwame Asare 24, alias ‘Boys Abr3’ and Kofi Yakubu, 23, who had been on Police wanted list for sometime, were arrested at Suhum.
According to the Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, the two belong to a car snatching syndicate that has been masterminding the recent wave of robberies and carjacking activities in the region.
“Suspect Kwame Asare led police to Amenase and Asuboi near Suhum for the arrest of one other accomplice by name Sammy alias Oscar, but he was absent. Suspect Eric Twumasi, 19 years, Emmanuel Tengey 16 years and Ansong Tawiah 15 years, were found in the room of suspect Sammy and when a search was conducted in the room, a stethoscope and one sphygmomanometer were retrieved. Police proceeded and conducted a search in the room of Kwame Asare but found nothing incriminating”.
ASP Ebenezer Tetteh advised the general public to help the law enforcement agencies with credible and timely information to enable them clamp down on criminals.
“I will therefore use this medium to plead with residents to report to the police strange movements and activities of people we live with in our neighbourhoods, because for all you know, they may be part of a robbery group. The police thrives on information from you the general public to work so help us with the necessary and vital information so we ensure sanity in the region,” he said.
