“This guy goes to a popular Hotel in Sekondi/Takoradi on Saturday, August 6, 2022 with his girlfriend, gets to reception to book a room and pays.
He leaves for his room with the girlfriend and wakes up deep at dawn and clandestinely maneuvers his way to the reception to realize the reception has left there to take a small sleep.”
“He quickly dashes to where the monies are kept ( because he monitored while booking) and takes some money
He comes for the second time to take another bunch of money and then the third time
All the amount adding up to 5,200 cedis”
Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the journalist who reported the story said the guy did not know he was being captured on a CCTV camera.
The hotel owners then plays the footage and made a manhunt for him and finally had him arrested on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
