Inspector Godwin Mensah, attached to the Operation Vanguard, was said to have conspired with another police officer and a driver, who are currently on the run, to rob the gold dealer of GH¢10,000.00.
He pleaded not guilty and would reappear on June 17.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Kwabena Oduro Boateng, prosecuting, told the court, presided over by Mrs Joyce Boahen, that the suspect and his accomplices were arrested at Kunka check point at Obuasi.
This was after a distress call to the police to help in a robbery incident at Mmamiriwa.

ASP Boateng said the culprits succeeded in robbing the gold dealer of GH¢10,000.00 after severe beatings.
