Thief served with beer after residents taught him a bitter lesson [video]

Currently trending on social media is a video of a thief being forced to clean gutters after he was caught stealing in a community in Takoradi.

It appears the practice of jungle justice is slowing fading away from Takoradi as residents are beginning to embrace more practical and creative ways to punish offenders caught in the act.

A thief was recently caught in Takoradi and rather than apply jungle justice to the situation or hand him over to the police, he was made to clean gutters as his punishment.

Thief served with beer

The mid-adult was apprehended after the residents monitored his movement and caught him with a bunch of plantain and some car parts, after frolicking the area for days, they said.

After he failed to identify the owner of the items, the residents tied a rope around his waist and paraded him in the area.

A volunteer group for sanitation made him distill the choked and smelly gutters while supervising him.

After the communal labour, some residents shaved a cross sign in his hair, as a symbol of repentance from thievery.
