A man has been busted in the twin city of Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region for stealing from a hotel he booked to spend time with his girlfriend.
It is believed he has perpetuated similar acts on other hotels in the city, whereby he makes reservations to stay in the night but later turns midnight to steal from the safe or drawers of such hotels after the receptionist has taken a break or night off.
The name and age of the alleged thief are unknown yet but it’s believed he is in his early 30s.
His latest action of thievery however occurred last Saturday, but luck eluded him as the said CCTV of the hotel captured him right in the act of stealing.
MyNewsGh.com has sighted a Facebook post of the development by an ace broadcast journalist with Connect FM in Sekondi – Takoradi Paa Kwesi Simpson …
Below is the exact post on his Facebook page …..
This guy goes to a popular Hotel in Sekondi/Takoradi on Saturday, August 6, 2022, with his girlfriend, gets to reception to book a room, and pays
He leaves for his room with his girlfriend and wakes up deep at dawn and clandestinely maneuvers his way to the reception to realize the reception has left there to take a small sleep
He quickly dashes to where the monies are kept ( because he monitored while booking) and takes some money
He comes for the second time to take another bunch of money and then the third time
All the amount adding up to 5,200 cedis
The source tells Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the guy not knowing he was being captured on CCTV camera, the hotel owners replayed the footage, makes a manhunt for him, and gets him arrested on Tuesday, August 9, 2022
Worse of it, many others have come to testify against him of duping them including one drinking bar operator who claims the suspect came to steal her drinks, drank much, and went to sell the rest at a ridiculously cheaper rate
