The two suspects

A National Service person working with the PBC Company Limited in Accra and one other, are being searched for by the police for allegedly attempting to steal GH¢131,578 belonging to the company.

They are Oscar Effah Baffoe, 29 the National Service Personnel, and Fuseini Sunuma, 21.

Baffoe, who was attached to the Accounts Department of the company, was reported to have forged documents on 6,000 cocoa bags, while Sunuma opened an account for the transactions.

The Head of the Fraud Unit of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Superintendent (Chief Supt.) Felix Mawusi, told The Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday, that between December 2015 and January this year, Baffoe generated 10 fake haulage waybills.

Chief Supt. Mawusi said after the generation of the haulage waybills, Baffoe forged cocoa haulage documents in the name of Sunuma and 6,000 bags from the Western Region.

He said a cheque was issued for payment, but later the management of the PBC Company became suspicious of the documents which had the same serial numbers.

Supt. Mawusi said the company withdrew the cheques and reported the case to the police.

He said investigations revealed that Sunuma opened an account in Accra for the transactions.

Chief Supt. Mawusi said his outfit had gone for a bench warrant for the arrest of Baffoe while efforts were being made to secure another bench warrant for the arrest of Sunuma.

He appealed to the public to volunteer information about the two to the police with the assurance that the identity of informants would be kept confidential.
