A Kumasi Circuit Court presided over by Mr William Boampong has sentenced a driver?s mate to 12 months imprisonment in hard labour over mobile phone theft.

Kwabena Ofori, who is aged18, was convicted after he pleaded guilty to the crime.

He had snatched the phone, a Samsung Galaxy, valued at GH?1,700.00 from Mr Eric Owusu Dankwah, as he received a call, whilst driving.

Police Inspector Gulliver Tenkorang told the court that the incident happened on Wednesday, March 12.

The complainant quickly pulled up, came out of the car and raised the alarm to attract the attention of some bystanders who helped to arrest the convict after a hot chase.

Ofori was handed over the police and admitted the offence in his caution statement. GNA
