JUST In: Ghana’s biggest car snatching syndicate busted with 7 stolen cars

The suspects were arrested and interrogated and asked to show where they live at Kwapra as they claimed that was the area they stay.

They later admitted that they came from Sunyani and hired the taxi cab from Asafo market to Kronum Kwapra ostensibly to rob the car from the driver.

The Suame Divisional taskforce proceeded to Meduma with the suspects and retrieved four (4) snatched taxi cabs and upon further interrogation the suspects informed police that other vehicles were in Sunyani in the bono region. Police proceeded to the area and retrieved three (3) more taxis.
