Manhunt for house boy

A TEMA District Court has ordered the arrest of a 30-year-old man over a stealing case.

The court issued the warrant for the arrest of Clement Adjei who has been accused of dishonestly appropriating an amount of GH¢15,000 and he is to be brought before the court to face trial.

He is also said to have stolen mobile phones and laptops worth GH¢15,800.

The slim dark man with the height of 5.6 and a native of Tepa in the Ashanti Region, is also known as Kujo and was last seen at Tema Community 20 on June 12, 2013.

A statement issued by the Sakumono District Police said the accused, who was the houseboy of the complainant, is believed to be hiding at Tepa, Juaso, Tema, Ashaiman and Adjiringano, Cape Coast or Tamale.

According to the complainant, on June 14, 2013, he returned home from Accra only to discover that his houseboy had made away with his Ipad mini, Iphone ‘5’, two ‘17’ Toshiba laptops, five Samsung mobile phones all valued at GH¢15,800, an amount of GH¢15,000 and a pen drive.

The police therefore urged members of the general public to assist in tracing the whereabouts of the suspect.
