Assistant
Superintendent of Police (ASP) Joseph Benefo Darkwah, Tema Regional Police
Public Relations Officer, told the Ghana News Agency that the Command impounded
the bikes and vehicles in an exercise on July 19, this year.

ASP Darkwah said the
exercise which was led by Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) George Tuffour,
Tema Regional Police Commander, took place between 20:00 hours and 02:00 hours.

He added that it was
targeted at unregistered vehicles and motorbikes which were predominantly used
by criminals for robberies and other criminal offences.

The Command embarked
on the swoop as part of the Police Administration’s nationwide operation to
clamp down on criminals and their activities.

ASP Darkwah indicated
that the 175 impounded vehicles and motorbikes would go through screening after
which, owners found to be culpable would be prosecuted.

He announced that the
exercise would be replicated in the Ada, Prampram and Dodowa Police districts,
to fully rid Tema and its environs of unregistered cars and motorbikes used for
criminal activities.
