During interrogation, the 27-year old suspect said he returned to the house for more properties after the success on his first round of his thievery.
Narrating the incident to Accra-based Starr FM Pastor Asare Nyarko said the incident happened on Sunday morning when he and his family left for church.
Pastor Nyarko said he noticed someone had entered his house forcefully when he returned from church and immediately notified the police.
"“We entered the house with caution, looked at the rooms - the first two were intact - so my wife was going to our bedroom and she saw somebody in our room. So all the Elders with myself opened the door and this guy was fast asleep on my bed and not even the noise the seven of us made woke him up.”
“We had to shake him before he woke up so [we arrested him] and sent him to the police station." Pastor Nyarko
During interrogation, the 27-year old suspect told the police he felt drowsy after smoking marijuana to gain more energy to escape through the ceiling after another attempt at stealing.
