The screen saver on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 mobile phone has led to the arrest of two highway robbers.
Manhunt for robbers
The Bole Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mr David Dogbatse Azumah, who confirmed the arrest of the two suspects to radioxyzonline in an interview, said a day after the robbery, the two suspects went to Banda Nkwanta to offer the phone for sale to a woman.
He said upon examination, the woman detected that the photograph at the background of the phone was that of one of the passengers who were robbed on August 30, 2016.
He said she immediately alerted some residents who helped in arresting the two suspects and handed them over to the police.
Mr Azumah said during interrogation, the two suspects allegedly confirmed that they were among the six armed gang that robbed the passengers on board the mini bus on August 30, 2016.
He said the police had launched a manhunt for the remaining four.
