The Tema Regional Police Command has discovered an armed robbery training ground where new recruits are taken through shooting practice.

Tema Police PRO, ASP Juliana Obeng said that the training ground was discovered after five armed men attacked a Chinese factory in Tema Industrial area and made away with some valuables.

She said the police, upon a tip-off, went to the suspected hideout of the suspected criminals.

According to her, when the police arrived at the Community 3 Ramsar Site, they found the recruits ‘’busily rehearsing” using plastic bottles as their target.

“Upon seeing the police, they opened fire and the police returned fire, instantly killing one,” ASP Obeng told the media on Sunday, August 21, 2016.

She said two of the suspects escaped with gunshot wounds and one was arrested.

The police were also able to retrieve 72 cartridges and some empty plastic bottles at the scene.

Meanwhile, ASP Obeng has urged the public to assist with any information that could help the police arrest the escapees.

“If you live in an area or you are working at the hospital and you see somebody with gunshot wounds, kindly alert the police so we can follow up and arrest these persons,” she said.
