The six persons arrested in connection with some missing excavators have been granted bail.
They are expected to report to the Criminal Investigations Department later on Wednesday.
The six, including the suspended First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party in the Central Region, Ekow Ewusi, have since been cautioned with the offence of stealing and abetment to stealing.
According to the CID, the five other arrested individuals are accomplices of Mr. Ewusi, who was contracted to take custody of the seized equipment.
They are Frederick Ewusi, Joel Asamoah, Adam Haruna, Frank Gyan and John Arhin.
The Police arrested all of them together with Ekow Ewusi on Monday, February 3, 2020, at Abelemkpe in Accra.
The controversy began when Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology & Innovation, disclosed that most of the excavators that were seized from illegal miners had vanished.
Ekow Ewusi was contracted by the government to cart excavators and other vehicles and pieces of equipment seized by Operation Vanguard to designated areas for safekeeping.
Prof. Frimpong-Boateng subsequently wrote a letter to the Police CID to investigate Horace Ekow Ewusi over his alleged involvement in the missing earth-moving equipment.
The Concerned Small Scale Miners Association subsequently told the Minister that they knew where the missing excavators were.
