Coconut seller sentenced one year for stealing Nokia phone


Akim Swedru (E/R), March 4, GNA – The Akim Swedru Circuit Court has jailed Kwasi Twum, a coconut seller from Kwabodie Number One, in the Birim South District, to one year jail-term for stealing a Nokia cell phone worth GHc150.00 belonging to Isaac Ogum, Akim Oda taxi driver.

Twum, 22, who was convicted on his own plea of guilty to stealing, was further ordered by the court presided over by Mr. Yaw Atta Sampong to pay GHc150.00 to Ogum to defray the cost of the cell phone.

Police Inspector Kwaku Appiah told the court that on February 22, this year, Ogum was contracted to load some consignments from the Akim Oda market area and when he opened the car boot to do so, Twum quickly stretched his into the car and picked the driver’s Nokia cell phone, which was left on the car dash board and bolted.

Inspector Appiah said a witness in the case, who later saw Twum on February 27, this year at the market area, alerted Ogum and he was arrested.

He stated that during interrogation, Twum admitted having stolen the phone.
