The women,  Aminata Toure, 33, and Maraim Kone, 31, were said to be regular visitors to the shop which deals solely in wax prints at Okaishie in Accra, where they had stolen the clothes on many occasions.

According to the Daily Graphic reports, The suspects were arrested when they went back to the shop to steal more of the wax prints.

One of their accomplices who is yet to be identified is currently on the run.

Briefing the Daily Graphic, the Crime Officer of the Accra Central District Police, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Kwame Owusu Sekyere, said the owner of the shop discovered that some of her goods were missing.

The shop owner, Ms Basowa Sarfowaa, then tasked the shop attendant to be observant and also monitor visitors to the shop.

“It was discovered that any time the suspects visited the shop in the company of another woman, also suspected to be an Ivorian, the shop recorded between 10 and 20 missing wax prints,” he said.

According to Mr Sekyere, the three women usually visited the shop under the pretext of buying wax prints.

“One of them would engage the shop attendant after selecting wax prints displayed on the top shelves. And while the attendant struggled to get the clothes, the others would swiftly pick the wax prints and hide them under their dresses,” he said.

On February 19, 2015, the three women visited the shop again. One of them bargained for 50 pieces of cloth, but changed her mind later and bought only two as the two accomplices walked about in the shop without purchasing any cloth, He added.

“Unknown to them, the owner of the shop had installed a CCTV camera with the aim of apprehending those behind the missing wax prints in her shop,” the crime officer said.

When the suspects left, Ms Sarfowaa found out that 10 pieces of wax prints had been stolen. 

“So she quickly reported the incident to the police and waited for the women to return to the shop again to do their own thing as usual,” he said.

The following day, February 20, 2015, Mr Sekyere said two of the women, Toure and Kone, arrived at the shop under the pretext of buying pieces of cloth and the police were called in to arrest them.

“The suspects were shocked when they were shown footages in which they were captured, putting the pieces of cloth under their dresses and walking out of the shop without paying for them,” Mr Sekyere said.

A number of shop owners who deal in wax prints are said to have identified the suspects for allegedly stealing from their shops.
