A 43-year-old construction labourer has been sentenced to six years imprisonment by the Adentan Circuit Court for stealing items from a house he broke into at Adamorobe, near Oyibi, in the Greater Accra Region.
Kwabena Kuma, charged with unlawful entry, stealing and causing unlawful damage, pleaded guilty.
The Court presided over by Mrs Abena Amponsah Buansi convicted Kuma on his own plea.
Chief Inspector Anim Darko told the court that on December 7, 2022, Bulley Agyei in the company of other men from Adamorobe arrested Kuma and handed him to the police at Oyibi.
The prosecution said the accused was taken to the Charge Office with latex form mattress and two Samsung Speakers.
Chief Inspector Anim Darko said on December 7, 2022, when Agyei saw Kuma carrying the items, raised the alarm and Kuma was arrested.
The prosecution said when Kuma was arrested, he could not offer any tangible explanation as how he came by the items.
Chief Insp. Darko said Solomon Bismarck Arthur, the complainant, reported to the police that his house had been burgled and items stolen.
The prosecution said the complainant identified the mattress and the two speakers as some of the items stolen from his house.
Chief Insp. Darko said during interrogation, Kuma admitted the offence and mentioned Owuraku as his accomplice.
The prosecution said Kuma led the police to a nearby bush where 55-inch Samsung Television, a standing fan, a microwave, a Samsung Home theatre were retrieved. —GNA
