Fingerprint Analysis Lands Armed Robbers In A Serious Trouble

Fingerprint and facial analysis from crime scenes have over the years been one of the secured means of identifying criminals in other parts of the world. In Ghana, it is not always the case for the police to use fingerprint technology to arrest criminals. They mostly rely on informants and their thorough investigations to grab the criminals after the crime has been committed.

But it seems technology has advanced in the enclave of the Ghana Police Service. A taxi driver, Osei Kwame Banahene has been killed by armed robbers at the Greda Estate in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The armed robbers bolted with his vehicle after he was killed. It is still unknown if they made away with money, and nobody has been able to tell why they attacked and killed the young man.

The situation has left residents in the area in fear, most of them have started beefing up security in their various homes to avoid them being attacked by armed robbers. Some of them could be seen installing electrical wall fences. Others have confessed to buying foreign dogs to chase away armed robbers when they dare return to the community. Their major concern is for the police to arrest the killers of the Taxi driver.

The good news is that the police are making inroads to arrest the armed robbers. The taxi which the armed robbers took away has been retrieved at Nungwa in the Greater Accra Region and upon further investigations, the Teshie District Police Commander, DSP Ransford Nsia has indicated that his men have found evidence from the vehicle and will use the lead to arrest the armed robbers.

It seems the armed robbers are in huge trouble because the police found their fingerprints all over the vehicle and they have collected them for analysis and examination. The fingerprints if thoroughly examined are a sure way to lead to the arrest of the armed robbers in no time. This is promising to be a huge achievement if it should achieve a positive result. A lot of criminals can be arrested through the same means.
