Police arrest 2 for stealing tricycle, motorcycle at  Manso

The Assin South District Police Command on Saturday arrested an ex-convict and his accomplice for allegedly stealing a tricycle and motorcycle at Manso, near Darmang, the district capital. 

The suspect, AbekuAcquah, 33, was jailed five months ago for stealing about 1,000 fowls from a poultry farm belonging to a Customs officer at Assin-Manso.

A police source said the ex-convict and his 14-year-old boy accomplice were arrested at Assin-Kyinso upon a tip-off when the tricycle they were traveling in run-out of fuel. 

The items were believed to have been stolen from Assin-Fosu in the Fosu Municipality to be transported to Mankesim for sale. 

Mr Williams Appiah, the Assemblyman for Assin-Manso, alleged that the suspect and other accomplices had been terrorising market women and traders at Assin-Andoe and commended the police for their efforts. -GNA
