Chief Superintendent Martin Ayiih, the Adenta Divisional Commander, has bemoaned the surge in car snatching cases in the area.
According to him, in a bid to curb the situation, the police has beefed up security in the area and on the look out for perpetrators of such act.
He thus entreated the public to avoid using unregistered vehicles and motorbikes at night.
He said the night police patrol team may detain such vehicles till the next morning.
Chief Superintendent Ayiih, in an interview, said such robbery cases often occur between 2200hrs to 0200hrs.
He said children should also be taught to memorise the police emergency numbers so that if parents were not at home, they could call the police in times of distress.
Chief Superintendent Ayiih said there was also the need for the public to make indelible marks on some of their valuable items so that they could easily be identified should the suspects be arrested.
