An 18-year-old house boy, Patrick Mensah, has been jailed three months imprisonment with hard labour for stealing money and other valuable items from his employer. 

The young convict pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared before the Amasaman District Court B and was convicted accordingly.

However, his employer Mr Gyarteng Adarkwa Frimpong, the complainant in the case, was very displeased with the judgment.

He wanted either his money refunded or Mensah to serve some more time in jail instead of the three months given him.

The facts of the case as presented to the court by Sergeant Salifu Nashifu were that on December 2, 2014, Mensah was cleaning Frimpong’s bedroom, saw his briefcase and opened it. 

Sgt Nashifu said Mensah stole four wrist watches valued at $2,000, a bracelet valued at $40, a Guaranty Trust Bank Visa Credit card, an International Commercial Bank cheque book and a sum of £50.

Sgt Nashiru said, a day after the theft, Mensah approached Frimpong and told him he was no longer interested in working for him.

Mensah then left for Elmina and used Frimpong’s credit card to withdraw GH¢2,665 from the Cape Coast and Elmina branches of the Guaranty Trust Bank. 

The prosecutor said Frimpong later realised the loss of his valuables and also detected that someone was withdrawing money from his account. 

During investigation, Mensah was identified as the culprit on the bank’s Close Circuit Television Camera (CCTV). 

On February 4, 2015, Mensah was arrested by the police at his hideout at Elmina. Two wrist watches, a bracelet and a cheque book were retrieved from him.
