The SIM cards included used 4,998 MTN, 1,694 Airtel, 88 Glo and 48 Tigo cards.
Cards which had not been used included 234 MTN, 1,290 Airtel, 200 Glo and 46 Tigo cards.
The cards were used to facilitate grey routing of international calls.
No one was arrested but two huge Sim Box machines loaded with 128 MTN and Airtel SIM cards each, three power batteries and an inverter were retrieved by the team.
The operation was carried out based on a tip-off by an informant to the Ghana Police Service.
The team is said to have carried out a surveillance in the area with the help of Subah Infosolution. The signal then led the team to a small container shop near Gbawe.
He said, “Subah’s SIM fraud operations save the Government of Ghana and the telcos $10 million a month.”
Last year, the Anti-Telecom Fraud Task Force arrested seven people for allegedly diverting international calls through SIM box machines. They were busted in Tema and Accra, all in the Greater Accra region.
