Two power cable thieves have been arrested by the police after a taxi driver adopted a smart strategy to cause their arrest.
According to the driver, known as Ata Asante, two men believed to be in their early twenties boarded his vehicle from Iran Clinic at Akweteman in Accra.
He added that as they drove in his vehicle, he overheard the suspects, Noah Agyei and Kwame Awazy, discussing in the Ewe language, their potential income from the sale of the cables.
Convinced that the cables were stolen, he gave them an excuse that he wishes to use the route in front of the Multimedia premises, since he is an avid listener of Adom FM, one of their radio stations.
Per a report by myjoyonline.com, he raised an alarm after which a large number of people quickly helped to subdue the suspects.
The suspects, who have been arrested by the Tesano police revealed that they were sent by their master.
Information available shows that the power cables belong to the Electricity Company of Ghana.

The residents of Pigbengben in Wa West District of the Upper West Region reportedly face challenges when trying to get women in labour as well as children to healthcare facilities.
This is because there are no treatment centres present and as such, it becomes necessary to travel over 7 kilometers on a bumpy road to get to adjoining communities.
The situation is worsened, according to reports, during the rainy season when the roads become muddy and slippery.
