A Tema Magistrate Court yesterday convicted a 39-year-old trader for causing unlawful damage to property.
Eunice Gayomeh, was convicted on her own plea, but the court presided by Mr Joseph Mac Ali Jnr, deferred sentencing to January 28, to enable accused furnish the court with the results of a pregnancy test, which the court ordered as part of the trial process.
Accused was granted bail in the sum of GH¢1,500.00 to reappear on January 28.
Prosecuting Chief Inspector Cecelia Mensah, told the court that the complainant, Mercy Owusu and the accused, Eunice Gayomeh, live in the same area at Tema Community 2, A-Lang.
She said on November 16, 2019, the complainant, reported at the Community 2 police station that accused had used a cutlass to cut the tarpaulin (valued at GH¢1,100.00) that covers a canopy she plies her trade under.
Police arrested accused and during investigation, she confessed committing the crime.
