Asokwa Divisional Police Command has arrested three suspected gangsters/armed robbers from their hideout at Amakom, a suburb of Kumasi, upon a tip-off.
The suspects are Felix Addai Mensah, alias ‘Abodam’, 22, Prince Boadi, alias ‘Stone’, 20, and David Acheampong, alias ‘Billion’, 30.
According to ASP Gordon Ahianyo, Ashanti Regional Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, the suspects were arrested last Tuesday, the same day they had attacked their victims at gunpoint at Asafo and succeeded in robbing them off a traveling bag containing their personal effects.
As a result of intensive investigations, the victims identified the suspects, upon which they retrieved their stolen items.
ASP Ahianyo disclosed that a locally manufactured pistol and five BB cartridges were found on the suspects following a search on them.
All the three suspects have since been detained in custody, and are assisting in further investigations before being arraigned before court for prosecution, the official spokesman of the Police Service indicated.
