Salesboy remanded for allegedly stealing GH¢30,000

The Ashaiman District Court has remanded Gideon Oduro, a salesboy, into police custody for allegedly stealing GH¢30,000 belonging to his employer.

Oduro, who pleaded guilty to the charge of stealing, was remanded by the court presided over by Mr Derick Eshun Parde.

 Prosecuting, Inspector Kwad­wo Danso, said the complainant, Mr Isaac Amoah, is a businessman, whereas the accused works as a salesboy in his shop.

The court heard that about two years ago, the complainant employed Oduro to manage his phone shop, located at the Ashaiman Traffic Light area, on a monthly salary of GH¢500.

Insp Danso said that Oduro was initially at the shop with a salesgirl, who resigned, leaving him (Oduro) alone to manage the shop, which had a stock of phones worth over GH¢30,000.

The prosecution said the complainant visited the shop and decided to check the stock since new items were brought.

Insp Danso said Oduro could not account for the sales of phones amounting to GH¢30,000.

The prosecution said Oduro was arrested and handed over to the Ashaiman police, where a formal complaint was made.

According to Insp Danso, Oduro was cautioned, and during investigation, his MTN momo statement from MTN Ghana Limited, which was obtained, revealed that he used the sales for online betting.

The court heard that Oduro was charged and put before the court after investigation.
