The surge in robbery cases in the country is now assuming unimaginable heights.
It is beginning to look like a day hardly passes by without a single reported case of robbery in the country. This development has put many on edge.
The police administration have been doing all they can to control the situation.
They have succeeded in arrested some perpetrators of this crime. However, others continue to remain at large.
The police shot dead some recalcitrant robbers who engaged personnel of the police service in a gun battle around Zenu just last month.
The police in the recent past have shot several robbers dead. But this does not in anyway appear to deter others who have chosen to terrorise the good people of Ghana on daily basis.
15 suspected robbers who had snatched a Range Rover vehicle from a woman are reported to have been arrested by the police in Ashiaman.
The suspects are being held in the custody of the Ashaiman Divisional Police Headquarters assisting in investigations.
According to a Daily Guide report, the suspects snatched an unregistered Range Rover being driven by a woman at Adjei-Kojo and bolted.
"The gang was however chased by a group of commercial motorbike riders (Okada) who were later joined in their pursuit by a police team," the report said.
The team traced the criminals to their hideout at an area around Atedeka where they were finally arrested by the police.
A search conducted by the police in the area led to the arrest of additional suspects and the retrieval of a weapon.
In a related news, armed robbers have attacked a rural bank in Kumasi and killed the security on guard duty.
The deceased who has been identified as Alex Opoku, was found killed this morning with his hands and legs tied to his back.
The Automated Teller Machine (ATM) was found breached and the banking hall broken into.
The robbery was however unsuccessful as the robbers could not get any cash.
