419 Lady Female Fraudster Arrested Over ¢55,000

The Odorkor police unit has arrested a 59-year-old woman, Bernice Gakpetor for allegedly stealing 504 boxes of baby diapers valued at GH¢55,500.

  • Published:

The suspect is said to have posed herself as a businesswoman and collected the ‘Bun Bun’ baby diapers from a company, Dweliquans Company Limited.

After receiving the items secretly escape without paying for them.

According Bernice, who has been on the police wanted list since July 2014, is said to belong to a group whose members defraud people by posing as businessmen or women. The practice is codenamed: ‘Gold Coast’.

Tthe Odorkor District Police Crime Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mr Emmanuel Osei Agbodeka, said on July 16, 2014, Bernice went to the showroom of Dweliquans Company Limited where she collected the items with a promise to pay for them, Daily Graphic reported.

“After taking delivery of the baby diapers, she disappeared without paying for them,” the officer said. Subsequently, the Director of Dweliquans Company Limited, Mr Daniel Welberg, reported the case to the Odorkor Police. On October 1, 2014, while investigations were ongoing, the police said, a man named Bismark Appiah was arrested in Kumasi with boxes of Bun Bun baby diapers as he was looking for buyers.

“According to Appiah, the diapers were given to him by Bernice to find buyers for her,” Mr Agbodeka said.

He said the Kaneshie Divisional Police had earlier received a complaint on August 18, 2014 that a woman who gave her name as Bernice Gakpetor had used the same modus operandi to take delivery of 1,121 bags of washing powder valued at GH¢67,200 from a company known as Kanje London Ghana Limited at Awudome in Accra.

On January 27 this year, Bernice allegedly went to another shop near Madina in Accra and attempted to use the same method to take away assorted items, including baby diapers.

However, the shop attendant, who was suspicious of the business transaction, alerted the police, leading to the suspect’s arrest.
