Cape Coast, Oct. 21, GNA – A four-man-gang of
suspected rustlers have been arrested by the police for allegedly stealing six
cattle at Assin SomNyame-Koduru in the Assin South District of the Central
Region.

Two of the suspects, Alhassan Abdulai 35,
driver of the DAG Truck used for the operation and Mohammed Haddi, 25, are from
Ashiaman whilst Abu Ali, 35, is from Assin Fosu, and Ali Yakubu, 45, from
Bawjiase.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Irene
Oppong, Central Regional Public Relations Officer who confirmed the arrest to
the Ghana News Agency said the other two were arrested later during a further
search by the police.

She said on October 19, 2018, at about 0420
hours the Police had information that occupants of a DAF Truck with
registration number GR2977-16 had tied some herdsmen with rope at knife and
gun-point at Assin Sumnyame Koduru and made away with their cattle.

The police sighted the said vehicle at Assin
Andoe enroute to Cape Coast and gave it a hot chase.

On reaching Assin-Manso police snap check
point, the driver was signalled to stop but ignored and drove through the
barricades mounted on the road but were chased to Assin Nkran where the
Assin-Darmang Police assisted in stopping the vehicle.

The suspects then abandoned their booty and
run into the bush but the police pursued and arrested the first four and later
the Assin Darmang police got the two others who were on their way to Mankessim.

The police retrieved from the suspects two
slaughter cattle and detained the DAF Truck used for their operation pending
