At least 23 suspected criminals have been arrested in a recent raid at Baatsona in Accra by the Ghana Police Service.

This brings the total number of suspected criminals arrested to 116.

The combined team of the Baatsona Police Division and the Divisional Police Command made the arrests at the hideouts of the criminals.

Head of Public Affairs Unit (PAU) of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Effia Tenge, told the Ghana News Agency that the exercise was part of efforts to flush out criminals in the Division.

“The operation identified and raided crime-prone areas within Kotobabi Market, Cambodia, Kiosk Estates/Ghettos and Ghanaman Park; all under Baatsonaa Division,” she said.

She said they also retrieved a set of home theater, a laptop computer and eight mobile phones, all suspected to have been stolen items.

The Head of Public Affairs said after screening they would be arraigned before court.
