Central Regional Police Arrest 130 Suspected Criminals In A Swoop

The Central Regional Police Command has arrested 130  persons including one woman in  a special operation  at  Kasoa-Buduburam in the Central Region at dawn on Sunday.

The police found quantities of dried-wrapped leaves believed to be cannabis, tramadol, scissors, boxes of cigarettes, mobile phones, a laptop and a parcel of whitish substance suspected to be cocaine.

Briefing the media on Sunday morning at Kasoa, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), David Agyeman Adjem, the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, said the operation was part of the Ghana Police Service’s nationwide exercise to clamp down on the activities of criminals.

He said the police had identified three hardened criminals on their wanted list among the suspects and would continue to profile the rest and prosecute all those found to have breached the law.

The police said while some suspects denied ownership of the items on them, others were caught smoking dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp.

The Commander assured that the police would remain relentless in its quest to flash-out criminals who have been terrorizing people, from their suspected hide-outs across the Region.

In that regard, he said stringent measures including intensified police patrols and intelligence works had been activated to deal with miscreants to give people the peace to go about their day-to-day activities.
