Robbers Abandon Luxurious Stolen Cars

THE ASHANTI Regional Command have retrieved two luxurious vehicles, suspected to have been robbed from their owners and dumped in a bush.

The two vehicles, a black-coloured unregistered Lexus RX350 and a Matiz Jazz car, were found in the outskirts of Aduman on Friday night.

The retrieval of the two cars came few hours after police had been informed about the robbery of a Lexus RX350 vehicle at Buokrom Estate in Kumasi on Friday.

According to a police report, two young men, armed with gun and machete, robbed the Lexus from its owner around 11:30pm on Friday.

It said the robbery incident was immediately reported to the police, who quickly sent their teams to help locate the robbers.

A team of officers from the Anti-Armed Robbery Unit, SWAT and Mamponteng Patrols were charged to do their utmost best and retrieve the Lexus.

Acting on information from the police information room and with the tracking coordinate, the police realised when they got to the scene that the robbers had abandoned the Lexus and a Matiz Jazz car, suspected to have also been stolen, in the bush.

Also, the team of police personnel realised that the DV number plate of the Lexus vehicle had been replaced with a vehicle registration number GW 2048-21.

The two vehicles were then sent to the Ashanti Regional Police Command, where the owner of the Lexus has since identified his car. Police investigations are ongoing.
