Car snatching is on the increase in Accra despite public education and arrests of culprits, the Accra Regional Police Command cautioned on Wednesday.

In a statement signed in Accra by Assistant Superintendent of
Police (ASP) Zenge Cyprian, the Regional Police Command said while the
last quarter of last year recorded 13 cases, the number increased to
43 in the first quarter of this year.

It said the trend was of concern to the police as it appeared
drivers were not paying attention to the security education that
police were giving.

The police reiterated that all drivers and car owners should be
careful as they plied their trade, and that they should be careful
when passengers hired their cars in the night to places they did not
know, just because of fantastic fares.

“They should avoid picking extra passengers on the way on the
instructions of those who hire their cars. It is important to drive to
the nearest police station for assistance if they suspect any
passenger or group of persons who have hired their services.”

The Police said the following telephone numbers were still
active: 030 2 773906; 030 2 773695; 024 4331 935 and MTN short code
18555 or 919.
