Thirty (30) year-old Louis Kwabena Agyei is in the grip of the Asokwa Divisional Police Command in the Ashanti region for stealing money believed to be collection from the St. Martin De Porres Roman Catholic Church at Atonsu.
The suspect, who was very well dressed, sporting a dark blue shirt over a black pair of trousers with black shoes to match, managed to bypass the security checkpoint because the security man on duty said he mistook him for a congregant and allowed him to pass without questioning.
According to an eyewitness, the suspect headed straight to the residence of the Parish Priest, entered the room of the cook and attempted to bolt with the undisclosed amount of money which was in a sealed envelope .
Some members of the parish who were present at the church premises managed to apprehend the knife-wielding suspect after he scaled the fence wall, upon shouts from the cook who had spotted him sneaking out of her room.
