An unemployed who was hired to sell mobile phone cards but made use of the proceeds to pay his debts has been arraigned at the Kade District Magistrate’s Court.

Aboagye Dacosta pleaded guilty for stealing GH¢124 of his employer, Justice Osafo.

Prosecuting, Inspector D. A. Atigsika, told the court presided over by Mr Abdul Majid Iliasu, that the complainant, a businessman, residing at Boadua opened a mobile phone cards shop for the accused.

He said on December 21, last year, the complainant took stock of the products and realized that the accused had sold cards worth GH¢124 but failed to give the amount to him.

When the complainant enquired from Dacosta what had happened to the money, he said he used it to pay his debts.

The prosecutor said the complainant, therefore, arrested and handed Dacosta over to the Police.

In his caution statement, he admitted stealing the money and was granted Police enquiry bail to be reporting at given days and time but he failed to do so and went into hiding.

On March 9, he was apprehended at the Kade market and handed over to the Apinamang Police.
