A 28-year-old driver who stole two goats at Nerebehi, near Nkawie in the Atwima-Nwabiagya South Municipality, has been remanded into police custody by the Nkawie circuit court.
Kwame Antwi, who was recently released from prison after serving a sentence on similar offence, pleaded not guilty and would reappear before the court on April 22, this year.
Detective Inspector Anthony Acheampong told the court presided by Mr Johnson Abbey that, a witness in the case saw Antwi carrying the goats in a white sack at about 4 am, on April 04, this year at Nerebehi new site.
He said when the witness called Antwi, he dropped the sack, ran into his room and locked the door.
The witness reported to two members of the Unit Committee in the community and they went to knock at the door of Antwi, but he refused to open.
Detective Acheampong said it was through the intervention of the landlord before the accused opened the door.
He said Antwi was arrested and handed over to the Nkawie police and during interrogation, he denied but was charged and brought before the court after investigations.
