Tesano Police has arrested two suspects, Emmanuel Noi, 64, and Christopher William Nii Offei, 49, for stealing phones at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Effia Tenge said the two suspects entered a mobile phone shop at Tip Toe Lane, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, under the pretext of buying a phone.
She said in the process, Christopher engaged the shop attendant in a chat as a ploy to divert his attention, whilst Emmanuel Noi stole the phone.
The shop owner, who was monitoring the Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) camera at the time caught them red handed.
DSP Tenge, the Head of Public Affairs Unit of the Accra Regional
Police Command, said the shop owner had taken keen notice of them, after a similar footage of their activities went viral some time ago, which captured the suspects using the same modus to steal a laptop from a shop on the Spintex road.
She said in the course of questioning, it came out that the two were again captured on other CCTV cameras for stealing Laptops and phones from electronic and phone shops in Osu, Kasoa and Tema.
The suspects are in Police custody and supporting with investigation.
