An Accra Circuit Court remanded Benjamin Tetteh, a mechanic, into police custody after he was accused of stealing two cell phones from two people in traffic at Community 18, Lashibi.

Tetteh’s accomplice, whose name was given as Aziz, is said to be at large. The accused has been charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and stealing.

The prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Wisdom Alorwu, told the court that after a careful perusal of the case docket, he was of the view that the accused person should be charged with robbery instead of stealing.

He, therefore, prayed for a short date to enable the police to amend the charges and the charge sheet.

The case of the prosecution is that the first complainant, Morris Gaussou, is a tiler residing at Community 18, Lashibi, and the second complainant, Patrick Sarfo, is an Uber driver residing at Dansoman, Accra.

On February 14, 2024, at about 7:20 pm, Gaussou, the first complainant, was walking along the Community 18 stretch, and at the Devtraco Junction, the accused persons, who were on an unregistered black Yamaha motorbike, pulled up, and on seeing Gaussou driving in the traffic at the same junction, snatched his iPhone valued at GH¢3,000 as well as the second complainant’s Infinix smartphone valued at GH¢2,000.

The prosecution said luck, however, eluded the accused persons when Gaussou drove and knocked Tetteh and Aziz down with his car.

It said Aziz managed to escape but Tetteh was grabbed and detained to assist in investigations. Tetteh has denied the offense in his caution statement and failed to assist the police in arresting Aziz.
