Police Chief Inspector Jonas Newlove Agyei told the court that on September 05 this year, the convict who had gone to harvest the plantain and the cassava and was loading them into a sack was arrested by the owner of the farm.

Ezekiel, who is an ex-convict, was sent to the Tepa police station together with the foodstuffs valued at GH¢50.00.

He admitted the offence in his caution statement and was charged and brought before the court after investigations.
