Man, 27, remanded for stealing from micro-finance company
A Kumasi Circuit Court has ordered that a 27-year old trader accused of breaking into the offices of a micro-finance institution and stealing cash and other items totaling GH¢95,900.00 be held in police custody.
Abubakar Moro denied the offence and would be brought back on Monday, September 26.
Detective Police Chief Inspector Martin Assenso told the court presided over by Mr Justice William Boampong that the complainant is the Chief Executive Officer of the Lord Winners Investment Limited.
Between March 3, and August 25, this year, three of its branches at Ejisu, Abuakwa and Asokore-Mampong were broken into and various amounts of money in the safes were stolen.
The thieves also made away with laptop computers and a cellular phone.
The prosecution said the police received intelligence report that those behind this crime were operating from a hide-out at Techiman in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
He said they, therefore, swooped on them and managed to arrest Moro. A search conducted on him uncovered three of the stolen laptop computers.
Detective Police Chief Inspector Assenso said a scan of one of these revealed personal information of the Ejisu Branch Manager and documents on the various branches of the company.
The accused claimed ownership of the laptop computer and insisted that he bought it from one “Red” in Accra.
The police are carrying out further investigations to arrest and bring to justice his accomplices.
