Ellembelle missing excavators: 5 Chinese busted

The five Chinese suspects

The police has arrested five Chinese suspects in a special operation conducted between the night of 7 September and the dawn of 8 September 2022.

The arrests are in connection with some missing excavators in Ellembelle in the Western Region.

One of the excavators has been found.

A team of operations and intelligence officers found the earthmoving machine several kilometres in a forest within the Ellembelle district.

While the team of police officers was accompanying the relocation of the excavator to Takoradi, Mr Kwasi Bonzo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Ellembelle, allegedly organised and led some thugs to attack the police and obstruct the operation at the Axim Junction.

The DCE and three others have, therefore, been arrested.

The police says it is continuing with investigations to recover the other excavator and arrest all the suspects involved.
