According to prosecution, on August 12, this year, at about 20:00 hours, while people were busy shopping at the Mall, Ike also entered the Shoprite section of the Mall and picked a bag and loaded it with King cracker biscuits, one medi-soft soap, two Lindor chocolates, two sets of tissue paper, an underwear, two bottles of Voltic water and a packet of Burger Peanuts, all valued at GH¢ 167 without paying for them.

The prosecution said Ike was handed over to the Weija Police for further investigations.
