A driver, Micheal Amock aka Asibi, who broke into the house of a broadcast journalist at East Legon and made away with monies and personal effects was on Monday sentenced to nine months imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.
Amock allegedly broke into the house of Barbara Gaisie and has been charged with unlawful entry and stealing.
Amock who pleaded not guilty was however found guilty by the court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh. This was after prosecution had called three witnesses to make their case.
Prosecuting Francis Tassan said the complainant Barbara Gaise resided at East Legon, whilst the accused person lived at American House.
On November 12, this year, prosecution said when the complainant and her house help were out of the house, the accused managed to gain access into the house and forcibly opened a back door and entered the various rooms.
According to prosecution, Amock ransacked the rooms and stole cash in the sum of GHC3,600.00; 500 pounds sterling; and some jewellery all totalling GHc7,100.00.
Chief Inspector Tassan said Amock hid the jewellery in a house owned by one Alex Donkor, a witness in the case.
Prosecution said Amock had told Donkor to watch over the jewellery.
Investigations later led to the arrest of Amock and the jewellery was retrieved.
