The Mankranso Magistrate Court has remanded two students and an auto mechanic into police custody for a week for allegedly stealing 12 laptops belonging to the Mankranso Senior High School (SHS).
The suspects, Yusif Zakaria, 20 and Kingsley Boamah, 19 are final year students of the Mankranso SHS whilst Kwaku Gariba, 34, is an auto mechanic.
He said police investigations revealed that the two students stole the key to the computer laboratory and took the 12 laptops away.
He said one student spotted the two whilst they were opening the computer lab and informed the school authorities.
The two were said to have collaborated with Gariba to sell the laptops in Kumasi and reportedly admitted the offence when they were arrested.
The prosecutor said the police have been able to retrieve five laptops as of now.
The court presided over by Mr Stephen Kumi remanded the three into police custody for a week.
The case would be recalled on Tuesday May 9, 2017.
