Car robbery, which is one of the thievery attack on drivers, will becoming to an end if we all do our part as civilians. Mr. Jude Osei Kwame, a car sprayer and painter, has helped the police of Buokrom and Tafo to relocate a stolen vehicle. Buokrom is a residential and business town, within the Kumasi Metropolis. It is made up of both traders and civil workers. Regina Marfo who is a teacher at Tafo Presby primary school, reported to the Tafo police about her stolen car, on 15 September 2020.

The car was stolen few days after the lock down. It was parked in front of Regina's house, when robbers took it away. Regina lives with her little sister at Tafo, in a commercial rented apartment. The house which is not gated, is a nine bedroom apartment house, with nine neighbours. Regina took the car to a washing bay for cleaning, on the evening of September 14. She parked the car in front of the house, after she came back from the washing bay.

She woke up on the dawn of September 15 to perform house chores, and couldn't find her car. Nobody knew where the car was, and nobody saw anything. The robbers might have pushed the car out of the compound, before starting the engine. Regina made a complaint to the Tafo police on the same day, but it was not found. Several announcement was made on various radio stations in Kumasi, and that was what helped in locating the car yesterday.

Mr. Osei was at his shop on Saturday 23 January 2021, when two men brought a car for him to spray. He suspected the men, because the car was the same description given on radio. He checked his list of stolen cars, and was able to get in contact with Regina to confirm the car. Regina informed the Tafo police, who escorted her to Buokrom to check for this car. As soon as the men saw the police coming to the shop of Mr. Osei Kwame, they took to their heels and started running.

Police followed them, but couldn't get them. Regina checked several times, to make sure the car was hers, before the police handed her the car. Mr. Osei Kwame was handed an envelope full of money from Regina, to show her appreciation to him. Regina was full of happiness when she spoke to me. She lost the car on 15 September last year, and found it yesterday, 24 January 2021.
