Two suspects have been identified in a case of three missing HP laptops which were being used for the ongoing Ghana Card Registration exercise at Aboabo No 2 in the Ashanti Region, Dailymailgh.com has learnt.
The suspects, one of whom is said to have spare keys to the Durul Hadith Mosque —where the incident happened are being pursued to assist in police investigations.
Preliminary investigations have shown that the Mosque, located at Aboabo No 2 —where the incident happened— was not broken into but rather opened with a key.
Though investigators could not name the suspects, it could not also confirm the retrieval of two of the laptops as it has been widely reported.
The incident was reported to the Airport District Police Command on Monday, December 30, 2019 after a Supervising Registration Officer detected that the three devices could not be traced at about 5:30 am when he arrived at the said registration center.
Officers who will not go public on the matter have given assurances of working to retrieve all the devices.
The Supervising Registration Officer and one other person have also been questioned on the matter.
They have since been cautioned and granted a police enquiry bail, investigators said on Tuesday.
Last year, 20-year-old Prince Kwadwo Boakye, was sentenced to four years in jail by a court at Nsuta in the Ashanti Region for stealing an HP Laptop computer used for the registration exercise.
The Agona Secondary Technical School student was picked up by the police after an official complaint was lodged at the Agona District Command on December 16, 2019.
He was put before the court after investigators retrieved the device from his room after a search.
He was found guilty of a charge of stealing and convicted by the court.
The Ghana Card registration exercise in the Ashanti Region is currently being done in 833 registration centers.
