The Teshie District police in Accra are keeping one Joseph Tetteh, 24, a driver’s mate, for allegedly stealing a 207 Benz bus belonging to his driver.

The suspect and his accomplice, Aryerh Adjei, who is a nephew of the complainant and currently on the run, are said to have sold the vehicle, with registration number GR 1305-X, to scrap dealers at Agbogbloshie, a suburb of Accra.

Briefing DAILY GUIDE on Monday, DSP S.K. Agbodeka, Teshie District Commander, said the complainant, Daniel Adjei Kwoa, is a driver and resident of Teshie.

According to the police, Adjei Kwoa on September 1, 2014 parked the vehicle at Teshie but at about 2:00 am on September 2, the duo sent the vehicle to Agbogbloshie and sold it out.

DSP Agbodeka stated that the complainant subsequently lodged a complaint at the station and the police mounted a search for the lost vehicle. He indicated that later in the day, the complainant found the missing vehicle at Agbogbloshie which was being cut into scraps.

The Teshie District Commander said the complainant went to the Agbogbloshie police station for assistance but by the time he came back to the scene with the policemen, the suspect, who was cutting the vehicle, had abandoned it and bolted.

DSP Agbodeka disclosed that the vehicle was towed to the Teshie police station.

According to him, on September 3, Aryerh allegedly sent Tetteh to Agbogbloshie to collect the proceeds from the sale of the 207 Benz bus for them to share.

The Teshie District police chief stated that with the help of some good Samaritans in the area, the policemen managed to arrest Tetteh at Agbogbloshie and handed him over to the Teshie police.

The police officer said during investigations, Tetteh admitted the offence in his caution statement and would be arraigned before court today.
