MEMBERS OF the general public who have had their vehicles, motorbikes and other items seized and parked at all police stations under the Tema Police Regional Command have to submit valid documents covering the seized items before the end of April 2013 to retrieve them, or the police will offer them for auction.
This was disclosed to DAILY GUIDE by the Assistant Public Relation Officer of the Regional Police Command, Corporal Joseph Barabu, in an interview yesterday. According to him, most of the items were seized by the police so as to help them to conduct investigations into offences like burglary, theft and fraud reported to those stations.
The advice, he said, would help all the police stations where some of these items are parked to know the rightful owners. ‘Some of these items have been with the police for quite a time now and to ensure that their rightful owners repossess them, we hereby ask that anyone who has a property, be it vehicle, motorbike or even an electrical gadget to come with a document covering such property and get his or her item,’ the Assistant PRO remarked.
He continued that without the documents it would be difficult for the police to be able to identify the rightful owners of the property.
Corporal Barabu explained that the exercise was to help decongest police stations under the regional command of several abandoned vehicles, motorbikes and other items. He hoped that members of the public who had their property at those police stations will take necessary steps to repossess them as soon as possible.
