According to Inspector Amponsah, when a team of police officers proceeded to De-Rash city, a restaurant located in Tarkwa, where the culprits were reported to have made a stopover, they met the three eating and Kwaku Baaro and Dominic Senyo were arrested, but the third accomplice managed to escape.
He said the stolen vehicle was brought to the police station and impounded.
The prosecutor said checks conducted on the vehicle indicated that it had been registered, but the number plates had been removed.
Further checks revealed that the address on both sides of the vehicle had been obliterated.
