Police in Accra have arrested five suspects who succeeded in snatching vehicles from unsuspecting victims at different locations in Accra.
The Police have since retrieved seven vehicles including; Toyota Corolla(2), Toyota Yaris(2) Daewoo Matiz car, Kia Morning and a Kia Picanto.
A statement signed by DSP Afia Tengey, Director, Public Affairs Unit of the Greater Accra Police Command said “although the modes of operation may vary, a common trend is that one or two members of the syndicate, hire the services of a taxi cab to a particular destination. Midway through the journey, other accomplices board the vehicle and snatch it at gunpoint.”
The Police say appropriate steps have subsequently been taken to prosecute the suspects.
The Command, however, cautions the general public to be informed of such criminal activities in order to prevent possible theft of their vehicles.
