A pastors wife was Tuesday put before the Accra Circuit charged with stealing 158 assorted cellular phones, worth GH55,100.

Leticia Ayensu Akoto, a trader, was alleged to have stolen the cellular phones belonging to Eric Abrah, her husband, who is a pastor, in August 2011.

She pleaded not guilty to one count of stealing and was granted bail in the sum of GH15,000, with two sureties, to reappear on March 8, 2012.

Prosecuting, Assistant Superintendent of Police Mrs Sarah Acquah told the court that the complainant allowed the accused person to take full responsibility of his two cellular phone shops in November 2009 while he concentrated on his pastoral duties.

According to the prosecution, the complainant took full stock of the assorted cellular phones in his shop before handing over the shop to Leticia.

About 2 p.m. on August 2, 2011, the complainant went to his shops and realised that both shops had been closed down.

He later received information that the accused person had packed all the cellular phones in his shop and absconded.

Following that revelation, the complainant rushed home and found that the accused person had packed her belongings, together with his cellular phones, and was about to leave for her home town.

The police managed to retrieve 205 assorted cellular phones from Leticia during initial investigations but she could not account for the remaining 158 phones.

She was later charged and put before court after investigations.
