Driver’s mate to spend 700 days in prison

A driver’s mate who snatched an amount of GH¢4,070.00 from an ex-soldier has been sentenced to 700 days imprisonment by the Nyinahin Magistrate’s Court in the Ashanti Region.

Gideon Agyei, 18, was convicted after he pleaded guilty to the offence. He committed the crime on January 13 at Sreso-Timpom in the Atwima-Mponua District.

The ex-military man, Mr Martin Broni, was carrying the money in a polythene bag and as he attempted to board a bus the convict snatched the bag and fled into the bush.

Police Inspector Daniel Otabil told the court, presided over by Mr Sam Nibi, that some young men in the community chased the convict and arrested and handed him over to the police but that GH¢2,070.00 of the stolen amount was retrieved.
