The Sunyani Magistrate Court B on Tuesday sentenced to jail, a fake pastor identified as Akwesi Amoah.
Amoah was accused of hiring musical instruments from one Dr. Brenya to be used for church programmes but later sold them in the Central Region.
The complainant had reported the matter six months ago after Akwesi did not return his instruments and was nowhere to be found.
Police investigations revealed that he sold the items to a buyer at Agona Swedru in the Central Region and Akwesi did not return the items as at when due and went into hiding.
He was traced to his hideout, arrested and subsequently arraigned.
In his judgment, Fred Obikyere, said Akwesi Amoah must serve six months in prison with hard labour and come back to pay GH¢5,000 to cover the cost of the items.
