A Tarkwa Circuit Court has remanded a 20-year-old galamsey operator, Emmanuel Asamoah,  into prison custody for allegedly robbing one Agye Owusu, of his gold concentrate worth GH¢30,000.

The accused person, pleaded not guilty to the charge of conspiracy to commit crime and robbery.

He will re-appear before the court on January 26 next year.

The Prosecutor, Detective Chief Inspector Oscar Amponsah said, the complainant is a driver at a small-scale mining company at Nyamenehene village and lives at Agona Amenfi.

On November 12, around 1830 hours, the complainant was driving a Nissan pick-up  while he was returning from the mining site, and detected that the road linking their house has been blocked with pieces of wood by unknown persons.

According to the complainant, when he got to the section of the road where the woods were placed, he stopped and two of the accused persons, Damoah, 22, and Issaka, 24, rushed to the vehicle and used the butt of a gun they were holding to hit the side glass.

They hurriedly picked the black concentrate of gold worth GH¢30,000 which was in the vehicle and bolted.

Chief Inspector Amponsah said about two weeks later, Asamoah was involved in another crime and he was arrested.

He was later identified by the complainant as one of the suspects who robbed him.

The accused person admitted committing the crime with Damoah and Issaka on November 12.
