Driver in court for stealing ex-wife's clothes

Cape Coast June 11, GNA- Paul Andoh a Driver, has been granted six million cedis bail, with a surety to be justified by a circuit court at Cape Coast for allegedly stealing six wax prints valued at 1.3 million cedis belonging to his ex-wife. He pleaded not guilty and would reappear on June 27.

Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Daniel Darko told the court presided over by Mr Mustapha Logoh, that last November, Andoh had a misunderstanding with his wife thus compelling her to leave her marital home. Inspector Darko said all efforts to settle their differences proved futile and the marriage was dissolved in February this year. He said on May 26, Andoh's ex-wife in the company of her brother, went to collect her belongings and in the process noticed that six pieces of wax prints she had kept in a trunk box were missing and she reported the matter to the police.

The prosecutor said during investigations one of the wax prints was retrieved from Andoh.
