A reformed member of a criminal gang has been sharing the modus operandi of his gang, including drugging targets before any robbery
According to the man, who pleaded anonymity, the gang mainly targets persons suspected to be wealthy.
“If you have a lot of possessions in your room too, we will get cocaine and make sure it is close to your nose, if you inhale it that is all,” he told Nana Kwadwo Jantuah on Nhyira Fm’s KuroYi Mu Nsem morning show.
The reformed robber also pointed to the use of a substance called “pote” to steal phones and other items from homes.
“Carpenters have something they use to seal roofing sheets when there are holes in them, that is what we wrap around sticks. No matter the weight of your phone, it will be able to pick it up,” he said.
He indicated before the gang go for robbery, they first monitor their targets to know the type of phones used.
“I felt very happy always after stealing phones because I didn’t suffer to get them and if I estimated it, I robbed more than 50 people before I became born-again,” he said.
After eight years of robbery, he decided to quit following an operation that led to his friend losing one of his hands.
