In a video that went viral, the man and the woman are seen close to a vehicle, which was identified as a Hyundai Elantra with registration number GS-2671-18.
After a few minutes of discussions, the man opens the driver’s side of the car, sits in the seat and pretends to open the passenger side for the lady.
However, in an unexpected twist of events, he suddenly shuts his door and drives away from the scene.
A Twitter user, known as @KwadwoBonnah1, who shared a video of the incident there, returned with good news the next day.
According to him, social media users teamed up to help find the man, who had no option than to return the MacBook.

The incident occurred at Sunyani in the Bono region and it has since been reported to the police.
Per a report by Ghana Web, the accident occurred as the minister was returning from a trip in the region.
He chanced upon the truck, which has its registration number as AS4955E, heading from Dormaa to Yeji in the Bono East.
Thank you family here.
The thief called my friend some few minutes ago after leaving the macbook at a fuel station for her to go for it.
I appreciate your kind gesture of sharing the video a lot. Bless you all!
Social media get results.
We have the macbook now! pic.twitter.com/DVK6S3aASI

Cheremeh’s car was destroyed by the KIA driver when he attempted to stop him and enquire about the destination of the lumber.
Shedding light on the incident, Cheremeh noted that the documents covering the illegal lumber during the arrest were suspicious because the amount paid in VAT was higher than the actual cost of the lumber and therefore further investigations needed to be conducted.
According to him, the fight against illegal lumbering has compelled dealers to transport them through illegal routes but the authorities are on high alert.
