Effiduase District Police Commander, Superintendent Asare Bediako, says the unidentified culprits are on the run, as investigation commence.
“I got a call from the district chief executive of Sekyere East that there has been a burglary at the MP’s residence so I organized my men to the scene. After inspection, we found out that the suspected thieves broke into the room through the window and took away clothes and other items from his bedroom.”He recounted.
Superintendent Asare Bediako says police and the local watch committee are intensifying surveillance to ward off criminals in the area.
“We have intensified our patrols but we are forming neighborhood watchdogs to assist us in patrolling. The police can’t be everywhere at the same time, so I have discussed with the DCE and other opinion leaders about the formation of the watchdogs to prevent such vices from reoccurring in future,” said Superintendent Asare.
