Narrating how the whole thing happened, it was reported that the two suspected criminals took “dropping” with the stolen items in a sack from Nkoranza to Santasi to pick another taxi. Upon alighting, the taxi driver then went to open the trunk for one of them whiles the other sat at the front seat.
The driver, upon returning to his seat, realized his GH¢ 50 money he had kept in the car was nowhere to found. Out of curiosity, he accused the suspected thieves,, but they denied. This led to a scuffle between one of them.
Meanwhile, the other counterpart had called another taxi which stopped over to pick the stolen items. Unknown to the criminals, the new taxi driver was the Unit Committee Chairman of Santasi Electoral Area.
The committee chairman was alarmed by the arguments going on between the old taxi driver and one of the thieves. He decided to probe into the young men,, but the two thieves denied taking the driver's money. Eventually, they gave the GH¢ 50 back to the taxi driver.
Out of curiosity, the chairman asked the group what was in the sack,, but the two could not give any proper response. The two taxi drivers then opened the sack and found out it was stolen items.
The chairman quickly called the Santasi police commander and a patrol team arrived at the scene to arrest the suspected thieves. Eventually, they showed the police the house from which they stole the items and were transferred to the Trede Police station, where they confessed stealing the items. The case was heard in court yesterday and the two have been remanded.
