Three suspects are now being held by the police after the Assin Fosu District Court ordered their remand after they reportedly broke into the ICT Laboratory of the Assin Juaso M/A basic school in the Assin Fosu Municipality of the Central Region.
They are Majeed Osman, a mason, Bernard Egyir, a 33-year-old businessman, and 17-year-old Emmanuel Opoku, also known as Stone, a driver.
Together, they are accused of stealing a system unit, a backup battery, two keyboards, six mice, and five desktop displays.
They admitted guilt to the charges of breaking and entering and stealing, and the court is expecting them back on September 14 to hear their punishment.
Chief Inspector Benjamin Doe Kuwornu, who was prosecuting, informed the Abdul Majeed Iliasu-presiding court that all of the defendants were Juaso residents.
He said that the inmates conspired to steal the things from the school’s property on Sunday, August 20.
To meet a customer, they transported the stolen goods to Kumasi, but their luck ran out when a police patrol squad there happened to come across them, saw their motions as they carried the bags through the streets, and confronted them.
He said that after being questioned by the police, they confessed to the crime.
The school where the case, according to the authorities, was formally reported to the Assin Fosu police was found by following the identification on the computers.
The police in Kumasi then delivered the accused persons over to the police in Assin Fosu.
