Two violent criminals captured by the police after they raided a hair salon at New Legon, Accra, where they seized a Toyota Corolla saloon car and mobile phones at gunpoint have been jailed 30 years by an Accra Circuit Court.
The operator of the salon, Patricia Yankson, had opened the place for business when Richard Klutsey and Solomon Asamoah together with some others now on the run, armed with locally manufactured pistols and other deadly weapons, struck.
Klutsey, Asamoah and their fugitive pals seized the ignition key of a Totota Corolla vehicle with registration number GE 7136 – 19 and a Gold Samsung Galaxy A9 from Patricia and forcibly removed the mobile phones of her three customers and fled with the Toyota Corolla vehicle.
The two bad guys were arrested based upon police intelligence. They were criminally charged with conspiracy to commit crime and robbery and they are each going to serve a prison term of 15 years.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Yakubu Fuseini told the circuit court presided over by Rosemary Baah Torsu that the two were arrested based on police intelligence.
The police conducted a search on the accommodation of the wife of Klutsey, whose name he gave as Roberta Tachie and found on her the Gold Samsung Galaxy phone seized from the salon operator.
She told the police officers that the phone was given to her by Klutsey and he was arrested. He mentioned Asamoah and the others now on the run during interrogation by police investigators.
The Circuit Court Judge handing down the punishment expressed concern about the increasing cases of robbery and said the sentence was meant to serve as a deterrent to any criminal-minded person out there.
