One hundred and one suspected Internet fraudsters and drug dealers believed to be the masterminds of major criminal operations at Kasoa and its surrounding communities in the Central Region have been arrested.
The suspects, including foreign nationals, were apprehended on Wednesday by the Kasoa Divisional Police in separate swoops in four communities in the Kasoa area: Obom, Akweley, Adade and Gomoa Nyanyano.
During a search at the hideouts of the suspects, the police retrieved one pump action gun with live cartridges, 126 laptops, 40 mobile phones, nine passports, Internet modems, unspecified amount of money and 11 wrappers of Indian hemp.
Briefing the Daily Graphic, the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), David Agyemang Adjem, said the police had been pursuing the suspected criminals for some months now.
He said Kasoa had been turned into an Internet fraud centre, where many young people from different parts of the country converged to undertake their criminal operations.
