Police Chief Inspector Daniel Ofori-Appiah informed the court that the complainant, Eric Forson, is a barber, while the accused, Kattalist, is unemployed. Both resided in a house in Osu owned by the Fraga Oil Company.

Chief Inspector Ofori-Appiah explained that in 2022, 22 used fuel dispensers owned by Fraga Oil were kept in the house under the care of the complainant. In February 2024, the complainant discovered one dispenser missing.

Further investigation revealed that the accused had taken them, as reported by other co-tenants.

The prosecution alleged that the accused subsequently stole three more fuel dispensers, selling them to scrap dealers for a total of GH¢120,000.00.

Kattalist admitted to the offence in his cautionary statement, claiming to have used the proceeds for sustenance. He was arraigned following additional investigation.
