Taxi driver arrested for stealing fuel

The Teshie Police have arrested a taxi driver for allegedly attempting to steal fuel.

The suspect, Emmanuel Ampratwum,was said to have attempted to escape with fuel worth GH¢70 at a fuel filling station at Teshie.

The Teshie Police Commander, Superintendent Simon Agbodega, said a pump attendant at the Ev Fuel Station at Teshie Agblezaa reported to the police that at 12 p.m. on Sunday, June 22, the suspect, in a Kia taxi with registration number GW 7712- 13, bought fuel worth GHc70,00.

“After the complainant had finished filling the tank with the petrol, the suspect told the complainant that he wanted to park his car well before paying the amount, which she obliged,” he disclosed.

The suspect, instead of parking his car, sped off without paying for the fuel.

It took the intervention of a motorbike rider who chased him and handed him over to the police.

He admitted the offence and was charged with stealing.
