According to Chief of Twifo Nuamakrom, Nana Akrofi I, he became
suspicious after realizing that the tricycle could not move freely as it should.
Out of curiosity, he decided to find out what load the tricycle was carrying
only to discover many heavy railway plates of steel that were being carted away.
The suspects were then arrested and handed over to the police.
Three of the suspects initially run away but were later grabbed by the
residents and the Chief himself.
The Chief said people have been stealing the railway steels and vowed
to deal ruthlessly with culprits.
The suspects are in the custody of Twifu Praso Police Custody
assisting in investigations.
