Two final year students of the Mankraso Senior High School have been remanded into prison custody for stealing 12 laptop computers.

A 34- year old accomplice is also in police grips over the computers belonging to the school.

They are 20 year old Yussif Zakaria, Kingsley Boamah, who is 19 and Kwaku Gariba an auto-mechanic.

School authorities reported the theft of the laptops which had gone missing from the school’s computer laboratory on April 27, 2017 to the Mankraso police. The laboratory is now left with twenty-nine computers.

Police say a student of the school spotted the two final year students breaking into the laboratory and quickly alerted school authorities.

The two suspects however managed to outwit authorities and took the gadgets away.

Police Chief Inspector Kofi Agyei Sabeng told the Mankranso Circuit Court the students stole keys to the laboratory before embarking on the crime.

According to police, the two later collaborated with Kumasi-based Gariba, an auto-mechanic, to sell the computers for them.

The three, upon arrest, admitted the offence for which they were charged and arraigned before court.

Meanwhile, police have been able to retrieve five of the laptop computers.
