Accra: Fuel station robber busted

Suspect busted

The police has arrested a suspect, Mr Iwejuo Anthony, alias Chibona, who, together with others, attacked and robbed a branch of the Pacific Filling Station at Krokowhe near Ashalaja in the Greater Accra Region at dawn on 5 June 2021.

The suspects assaulted and tied the fuel attendants down, broke into the metallic safe and stole an unspecified amount of money, a laptop and other items.

The police, in a statement, said the suspect was arrested through the security interventions laid down by the owner of the station coupled with his bravery and support of his neighbours.

Some of the stolen items and a pointed heavy metal bar were retrieved from the suspect.

“Efforts are underway to arrest the other suspects,” the police said in a statement.

The police has appealed to the public to make their personal security a priority as was done by the owner of the Krokrohwe Pacific Filling Station.
