The source said immediately the staff of Mon-Tran services collected the GH¢107, 271. 20 from the operations manager of the shop and attempted to enter the vehicle, one of the robbers who was spotted walking around quickly came over and snatched the bag containing the money at gunpoint.

He then fired gunshots to deflate the tyre of the Mon-Tran services vehicle and those parked around to deter the public and jumped on their motorbike and sped off.

The incident has been reported to the Tarkwa District Police command and investigations have commenced, but no arrest has been made.
