Car thieves grabbed

The Asesewa District Police have arrested two people for allegedly snatching two Hyundai H100 vehicles from their owners.

The suspects, Eric Addo Tetteh, 40, and Kwasi Owusu, 27, a driver, are currently in police custody at Asesewa assisting in investigation. Their accomplices (name withheld) are said to be at large.

According to the police, Kwasi Owusu confessed stealing the two vehicles from a mechanic’s shop at cable and wireless, Darkuman in Accra.

Briefing The Ghanaian Times, the Asesewa District Police Commander, Superintendent Stephen Kofi Ahiatafu, said a teacher from the Ayensu Besia Anglican Primary School reported to the police on November 15, that he bought a secondhand Hyundai H100 car, with registration number GW 7046-13, from Tetteh but after checking the authenticity of the documents from the DVLA Office at Weija in the Greater Accra Region, it was detected to be fake.

He said Tetteh was subsequently arrested at Brepaw, a suburb of Asesewa in the Upper Manya Krobo District, and he admitted selling the vehicle.

Supt. Ahiatafu added Tetteh led the police to arrest Owusu at Accra, where another stolen vehicle, with registration number GS 1646-Y, was found.

He said during a search conducted at the residence of Tetteh the police found three vehicle insurance stickers with numbers AS 3552-14, WR801-14 and GW 1642-14, a car number plate 1642-16, road worthy certificates and other documents suspected to have been removed from stolen vehicle.
