The Western Regional Police Command has denied allegations that two excavators left in their care have gone missing.
In a release issued from the Public Relations unit of the Service, it says no such excavators were left in the care of the police and has entreated the public to treat the allegations with the contempt it deserves.
Ellembelle DCE, Kwasi Bonzo, has alleged Friday, August 2 that two brand new excavators left in the care of two police officers in the region have gone missing overnight after the officers left their post.
He has described the entire scheme as an organised crime considering the circumstances surrounding the seizure of the machines and how they got missing.
But the Police have categorically denied knowledge of any such excavators left in their care by the DCE.
Meanwhile, the release notes “the DCE, his personal assistant and one other are being investigated in connection with the alleged missing excavators.”
