A young man in his mid-20s returned a stolen phone to its owner in a very dramatic fashion last Monday, March 11, 2019.
The culprit, whose name was only given as Joe, sneaked into the shop of a lady who sells bottled water and soft drinks to steal from her.
The incident occurred at Astoria Junction at Effiakuma New Site in the Western Region.
Realising that the shop owner was dozing off, Joe quickly took the iPhone of the shop keeper and hid it in his pocket and quickly walked away.
All this while, a man whose second-hand clothing store was about 50 meters away was calmly looking on.
When the culprit got to where this man was selling, he was stopped by the second-hand clothes seller and questioned: “Youngman, what are you holding in your hand?”
“It is a phone,” the thief replied in a very jittery tone.
The man then asked him to go and wake up the owner and give her back the phone.
He complied in a funny approach woke up the owner as he returned the phone.
“Madam, please take your phone, I came to steal it, I didn’t know what came over me,” he said and took to his heels immediately.
