Theft robbery

CCTV Captures Man Stealing GHC1.5 Billion And Smart Devices; GHC10K Ransom Issued For His Arrest

The spate at which robbery is being commited in the country is very alarming. An electronic shop was robbed of a whopping GHC1.5 billion including dozens of smartphone devices by an unknown man.

Lucky for the shop owner, his CCTV system captured the entire operation that was carried out by the young man. A vivid shot was taken of his face to assist the Ghana Police Service identify the him, and possibly cause his arrest.

But things could have been a bit easier for the police to identify the thief if the police have a face recognition software to determine the identity of this young man. From the imagery, the suspected thief might be in his late twenties.

He is dark in complexion and well built. It is obvious the loss the shop owner had suffered is huge given the ransom he has raised for any information that would lead to the arrest of the thief.

A sum of Ten Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC10,000.00) has been offered for any useful information that will enable the police track down this suspected thief. But to this promise comes a bundle of reactions as to why the shop owner had to keep such an amount of cash at his shop.

I did not make any sense to a majority of Ghanaians who have watched the video the read about the quantum of money that has been taken away, let alone avert their minds to the materials that were stolen in that operation.

What was not captured in the video is how the suspected thief broke into the shop and how he left without bing noticed. All you could see is the suspect busily loading his bag with the stolen items.

It is obvious he was not aware there was a CCTV installed inside the show given that his face was all over in the feed. He was topless, perhaps to cool off from the internal heat at the shop.
