About 50 suspected criminals had been arrested and a large quantity of dried leaves believed to be cannabis seized in a police swoop in parts of the Kumasi Metropolis.

These areas included Alabar, Asafo, Amakom and Anlo-Fante New Town.

This comes amid the step- up efforts to bring down crime in the city and assure the residents of their security.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Ampofo Duku, Deputy Ashanti Regional Commander, who led the operation, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the suspects would be screened and those found to be criminals prosecuted.

The police, he said, would stop at nothing to arrest and to bring to justice miscreants who cause misery to the law abiding.

He therefore cautioned them to give up on their bad ways in their own interest. GNA
