Since enjoying himself ‘too much’ on his illegal mission, a really stupid thief was apprehended.
He broke into a house and took a decoder and a television set, according to reports.
He was clearly starving after successfully stealing, so he opted to reward himself with some food in the house where he went to rob.
The perpetrator is said to have eaten multiple balls of banku along with the chicken soup that the family had cooked for supper.
Before he was arrested, he topped off the few balls of banku he had drunk with gari soakings.
“A full saucepan of soup made of chicken. They have been worrying us a lot in the area so I have cautioned my colleagues. I was in my room when he called me that they have arrested a thief who was trying to overpower them. He ate all their banku and chicken soup that was after stealing a decoder and a TV and moved to the next house where he was arrested. A dog in the other house made a lot of noise attracting residents leading to his arrest” a resident revealed on a local radio station Asona Fm
He has now been turned over to local cops and is due to be arraigned in court this week.
The event is said to have occurred in Wassa-Akropong, in the Western Region’s Wassa Amenfi East Municipality.
