The Central Regional Police Command has arrested 30 suspected armed robbers and intercepted a vehicle loaded with ammunition at Kasoa in the Central region.

The suspects were arrested after a dawn swoop by the police at Kasoa on Saturday.

Central Regional Police Commander DCOP Steven Andoh Kwoffie told Joy News’ Central region correspondent Richard Kojo Nyarko the suspects, who are currently in police custody, would be screened for further investigations.

He said residents of Kasoa and its environs have been terrorized by the activities of robbers – car snatching, streets robbery and house robbery.

He said due to the proximity of Kasoa to Accra, most robbers run to take cover there when they are being pursued by the police in Accra.

They have gradually turned the place into their meeting point where they converged to plan their nefarious acts, DCOP Steven Andoh Kwoffie said.

“For sometime now Kasoa has been the headquarters of criminals, particularly the robbery gangs…in most of the time too Kasoa is their meeting point before they go on their robbery operations.”

He appealed to the public to provide the police with “credible information” that would lead to the arrest of these criminals.

“We want to appeal to the public to continue giving us such information so that we can strike. And this operation is not going to be a one day operation, we are carrying the fight to their doorstep.”
