The suspects have been handed over to the Central North Regional Police Command for further investigation and prosecution.
It was reported that some criminals have consistently been stealing railway lines in the area at night and selling them to scrap dealers. As a result, the people became vigilant and eager to bring the criminals to book.
The police, as part of their routine patrols, spotted the nocturnal schemers on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, busily cutting the railway metals with machines which they quickly reacted with arrests.
According to the residents, it is surprising to know that the same Chief has always been speaking through the Community’s Information Centers condemning the stealing of railway lines and advising the youth and scrap dealers to desist from stealing the railway lines.
According to the Central North Regional Police Commander, DCOP Teye Cudjoe the suspects who are in police custody assisting investigation will be put before the court to face the full rigours of the law.
