A 27-year-old man identified as Moses Prowd has been booked for allegedly stealing a cartoon of dry fish from his Mother-in-law in Halfman Station Community, outskirt of Harper City, Maryland County. According to the Mother-in-law Sarah Freeman, the alleged theft occurred on June 24, 2020 at 7:00AM.
Madam Freemen narrated that before going to bed, she placed the cartoon of fish in the storeroom but the next morning she couldn’t see her fish, something that drew the attention of residents, who launched a massive search and later discovered that the missing cartoon of fish in question was stolen by her son-in-law, Moses Prowd.
According to Madam Freemen, Moses Prowd and her daughter Noami Williams have lived together for couple of years and the union is blessed with two children but he doesn’t care to cater to the children. “I am not even worrying about his refusal to take care of my grand children; why my fish?” She asked. The woman lamented that though she had heard information that her son-in-law is a thief, she couldn’t believe it until he has proved to her.
“I couldn’t believe this at all that he does such a wicked act to people in this Community. Thank God; it has come to light; what he has been doing in the darkness”, she added. Residents of Halfman Station Community said Moses Prowd has been noted as an alleged criminal.
“He is always stealing from poor people in this community; why now? Why is he always during such a wicked thing?” They wondered. Meanwhile, the Assistant Commissioner of Police in Harper City, Jacob Kumah has commended community dwellers for reporting the theft to the Liberia National Police. Police have charged suspect Moses Prowd with Theft of Property and detained him, pending court trial.
