Another burglary reported

Police are investigating a report of an aggravated burglary which occurred about 9 p.m. on Saturday  at Accra Beach Hotel, Christ Church.

In a brief statement to the media, lawmen said a masked armed man entered the hotel, and stole an undisclosed sum of money from staff on duty. No one was injured.

Just last week police reported  a 22 per cent dip in crime so far this year compared to the same period last year.

However, the acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, Erwin Boyce, told the relaunch of a neighbourhood watch programme in Atlantic Shores Christ Church  there has been an increase in the number of murders and aggravated burglaries.

    Thankfully there were no physical injuries.

    Hotels need to put in place 24 hour security (visible and undercover/armed), for the benefit of staff and guests. It will be money well spent.

    Surely this is an armed robbery and not a burglary? Either way it is time to send some guys to Dodds for a long time. Apart from the obvious distastefulness & malice of armed robbery this is economic sabotage and will hurt our tourism industry. Our judges have to be giving maximum sentences for armed robbery. We have too many illegal guns in stupid hands.
