A MEMBER of an armed robbery gang that was reportedly robbing merrymakers at the Titanic Beach at Community 3, Tema on Easter Monday was shot dead in a gun battle between the armed robbers and the police.

The incident happened at about 8:40pm when a police patrol team deployed to ensure security at the beach was engaged by the robbers who were carrying out an operation at the beach.

The robbers reportedly opened fire after they spotted police officers on three motorbikes approaching. The police returned fire and killed one of the five criminals while the remaining fled.

A search conducted on the deceased revealed a lady’s purse with two Samsung phones and a locally manufactured pistol with an empty AS cartridge.

The lifeless body of the unidentified robber has been deposited at the police morgue for autopsy and preservation as efforts are underway to find his relatives.

Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Obeng, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Tema Regional Police Command, who confirmed the incident which occurred on March 28, 2016 toDAILY GUIDE, disclosed that the robbers were being tracked and that everything was being done to arrest them.

According to her, operational measures put in place by her outfit to ensure law and order before, during and after the Easter festivities led to the foiling of the operation of the gang at the beach.

“Police personnel in the region worked day and night to carry out these measures to near perfection and the security situation in the region remained calm and predictable,” she noted.

However, on Monday, 28th March, 2016, which was a holiday, there was an exchange of gunfire between a police motorbike patrol team and a group of five suspected robbers, which resulted in the death of one of the robbers.
