A woman believed to be in her late 40s has been arrested by the Kasoa New Market Police for allegedly stealing engagement clothes at Kasoa Downtown in the Central Region.

According to sources, the woman [name withheld] also stole other clothes and items in five different houses in the same vicinity.

“The engagement clothes belongs to my later mother; my father had locked them in his room,” a victim, Elizabeth Akoto, said.

Speaking to Adom News’s Kofi Adjei, Elizabeth Akoto said it is a mystery how the suspect gained access into their locked room.

“My father had locked and hidden the key somewhere, so I asked the suspect how she managed to open the door. She only said she took it from where he had hidden.”

She said they are alarmed as no one seem to have ever seen the suspect in the area, and no one knows her in the vicinity.

“When we saw her, we forced to check what is in the sack she was carrying. We found our clothes, laptop and charger, and about 20 different keys.

The suspect before taken to the police station, however, denied taking anything from the house.
