The high vigilance of a police officer on duty at the Cantonments Police Station in Accra foiled an attempt by a lady to smuggle a pistol and ammunition into a cell.

On Sunday, July 11, 2021, at about 4: 45 PM, a young lady aged about 23 years with Nigerian accent came to the charge office with two packs of Papaye labeled fast food to be served on a robbery remand prisoner in cells.

According to the Police, when the food was carefully inspected by the duty officer, a locally manufactured pistol with AA cartridge was found concealed in one of the packs with the food covering it.

Unfortunately, the lady managed to flee the scene.

Strenuous efforts are underway by the Police to trace and arrest the lady.
