OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Luck ran out for a suspected thief at Techimantia in the Tano South District of the Ahafo region after he tried to steal from the Catholic Church in the town.
The thief, identified as Agya Asuo, got trapped in the church building after breaking in to steal some items.
According to a report YEN.com.gh monitored on UTV, Agya Asuo entered the church by chiselling a part of the down floor of the building.
While chiselling the building, the noise woke some people up and waited for him to enter before going to inform the caretaker of the church.
When the caretaker came to open the door of the church, they found the thief inside with some of the stolen items including offerings that had been kept in the building.
The group decided not to attack the thief or do anything to him but only asked him to go out of the building through the chiselled way he had made.
As if by design or God's intervention, Agya Asuo who is not big in stature and had squeezed himself through the hole to enter the church and steal could not go back through the same opening he had made.
He was later arrested and handed over to the police.
