The Accra Regional Police Command has cautioned residents, particularly vehicle dealers to be vigilant ahead of the yuletide. According to the Command, statistics available to it show a rise in vehicle hijackings in the Metropolis.

The Command made this known following the arrest of a 27-year-old Mechanic, Ebenezer Owusu, who allegedly “stole” a Toyota Tacoma pick-up vehicle at East Legon.

The Police said on the 29th of November, 2021, a report was made against one Ebenezer Owusu, who ran away with a vehicle he had shown interest in buying.

A Police Patrol Team was quickly assigned to pursue the vehicle, which had a tracking device on. The suspect met the owner of the vehicle under the guise of test-driving the vehicle before making payment, but bolted with the car, and was later accosted by the Police.

Speaking to Journalists in Accra, the Regional Police Commander, DCOP Iddi Seidu, gave the assurance that the Command has stepped up its operations to ensure that people within the Metropolis enjoy the Christmas season in peace.

He said adequate security measures are being implemented to secure lives and property.
