Two people arrested with 14 stolen sheep have been convicted to a fine by the Nyinahin Magistrate’s Court, presided over by Mr. Sam Nibi.
Joseph Awuah and Richard Anderson are to pay GH¢300.00 but in default spend 270 days in prison.
This was after they pleaded guilty to the crime of stealing.
The pair, together with two others on the run – Oscar Solomon, a driver, and one gDoctorh, stole the animals from Atumtuma and Ntobroso, two nearby farming communities in the Atwima-Mponua District.
The prosecution said they tied the legs of the animals, plastered their mouths and put them on a mini-bus.
Police Inspector Daniel Otabil told the court that the incident happened on January 25.
The thieves were given out and arrested when the vehicle transporting the stolen sheep broke down.
He said four of the animals were found dead.
The court ordered the arrest of the fugitive accomplices of the convicts.
