The Adentan Divisional Police Command has seized about 59 motorbikes in an intelligence-led operation.
Sources say the operation was aimed at arresting criminals who use motorbikes in snatching bags from residents and inflict wounds on them at the least resistance.
The operation led by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Joseph Owusu-Bempah started from 5-am today Wednesday.
The swoop was executed by 50 men from the Adentan Police Command and with able support from the Accra Regional Police Headquarters.
In a voice note copied to ClassFMfonline.com, the Public Affairs Director of the Accra Regional Police Command, ASP Efia Tenge, said the operation was carried out within and around Adentan Housing Down, Survival School area, Adentan-Ayi Mensah road, Rori Junction on the Frafraha-Dodowa road, Lotto Kiosk and Adentan Aviation.
“This exercise is aimed at arresting and frustrating criminals who perpetrate violence on innocent persons with impunity, especially during rush hours around bus stops and terminals and deprive them of their items, she disclosed.
ASP Afia Tenge further stated that “we have already begun screening and profiling of these persons who have been arrested and those who would be linked to any crime, will be prosecuted without delay.”
