Two labourers were on Tuesday sentenced to three years' imprisonment each in hard labour for stealing electrical appliances and personal belongings.
Henry Offei, 27 and Samuel Aboagye, 23 pleaded guilty to unlawful entry and guilty with explanation to stealing.
Offei admitted stealing a television set, ceiling and standing fans while Aboagye also confessed to stealing jewellery and 25 pieces of wax prints.
Aboagye stated that the wax prints were with a woman who bought them and that he should be given time to retrieve them because the woman had travelled.
A third accused, Kwaku Duah, was fined GH¢200 for dishonestly receiving one of the ceiling fans from Offei.
He will serve six months in jail if he fails to pay the fine.
The accused persons pleaded with the court for leniency and the judge took into account that the items had been retrieved before sentencing.
Police Chief Inspector Nana Amofah told the court, presided over by Mr Eric Baah, that the convicts stole the items after breaking into the room of the complainant, who had hired them to undertake some repair work in her house.
The Prosecution said a witness in the case saw the convicts and informed the complainant who lodged a report to the police.
