His pen drive also contained samples of the holograms for both the roadworthy certificates and the driver’s licences, along with an HP monitor, 155 blank cards, four sets of ribbons, three driver’s licences, and other goods.

The suspect was apprehended when the operation was being carried out by officers of the DVLA and the subterranean squad of the Ghana Police Service’s National Operations Unit.

“Mr. Ansah is now assisting the police with investigations,” the statement said.

The general public was warned to be caution when interacting with anybody who offered to handle their driver’s licences and vehicle papers for them.

It advised that for such services, “clients should make sure that they exclusively engage with certified DVLA staff at specified DVLA offices.”

“Persons involved in such illegal acts should stop right away, as the Authority is launching a nationwide operation to apprehend and prosecute such offenders,” the Authority stated.
