THE police at Kasoa Divisional Police Command in the Awutu Senya East Municipality of the Central Region have arrested the most wanted land guards who claimed to be the surveyors of the Lands Commission after dumping unsuspecting land developers.
Today gathered that the Central Regional Security Coordinator, John Ofori Arthur, acted on intelligence, and arrested the suspects with the fake land indentures and brought them to the Kasoa Divisional Criminal Investigative Department (CID).
The suspects who operate at an office called Richprince Property Consult at Kasoa Walantu, according to the police, were behind series of dumping land developers in Kasoa and its surrounding communities in the region.
The suspects—Richard Gyan, a ring leader, Issaka Issifu, Samuel Ninson and Ankra Abdallah—were arrested on Monday, January 28, 2019 with fake forgery documents with the inscription of the official logo of the Lands Commission bearing the name of one John Kofi Wilson.
The police noted that a search conducted in the office Richprince Property Consult revealed 10 assorted stamps including 3 Central regional lands surveyor stamps, 2 Greater Accra regional lands surveyor stamps and 2 stamp pads.
Other items retrieved included 110 stamped site plans, 170 unstamped site plans bearing the names of individuals, 3 laptops, 13 building plans, 1 GPS machine and some coloured papers suspected to be used in defrauding their victims.
The suspects have been remanded into custody at Kasoa after they were arraigned before the Cape Coast Circuit Court on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 with the police calling on persons who may have fallen victims to their criminal activities to contact the Kasoa Divisional Police Command.
