The unlawful receivers included Kwaku Amoako Ibrahim 26, Charles Benefo 37 and Kwame Korankye (22).

According to him, the arrests were made on August 9, 2015 after the Police apprehended two suspects selling the booty they stole.
DCOP stated that the suspects carry out their operation in residential areas and target their victims especially on Sundays between the hours of 6 and 11 am when most residents have left their homes for church services.
