House girl, Shelter Fiagbor, sentenced to five months in prison for stealing her master’s pistol. Her accomplice, Charles Serwonu, a driver and gardener, is on the run. The two were charged with conspiracy to commit crime and stealing. The HK P30 pistol with 15 rounds of nine-millimetre ammunition valued at GHS13,550 had gone missing.
Fiag Bor was later arrested at Agbozume in the Volta Region but she denied knowledge of the stolen pistol in her statement to the Police and was, therefore, granted police enquiry bail. She later rang the police again to say that she had found the pistol in Ser Wonu’s room and so the police proceeded to retrieve the gun.
The court sentenced her to a fine of GH¢12,000 and her accomplice to GH¢5,000 in fines. The convict was convicted after a full trial by the court, presided over by Mrs Evelyn Asamoah.
