Four other accomplices, who are civilians, have also been picked up in connection with the case. They have also been identified as; Usif Musah, Usif Sulley, Abdulai Issah and Joseph Baidoo.

Police upon intelligence, intercepted a Benz Cargo truck with registration number NR 991 P which was allegedly used for the operation, with the four occupants on board.

A search conducted in the truck retrieved six burner gas stove, four burner electric stove, three double door fridges and five pieces of air conditioners.

Other items retrieved include; two double bed mattresses, one sewing machine, quantity of electrical cables, two hacksaw blades, one drilling machine, four water holes and two main electric switches.

When the driver was interrogated, he mentioned Lance Corporal Peter Zator and Lance Corporal Ibrahim Mohammed, who are marine officers at Anyinase, near Half Assini, and were stationed at the Osagyefo Power Badge,  as those who contracted them to convey the stolen items to a yet to be identified location.

Police later arrested the officers who were spotted on an unregistered motorbike and were ready to escort the cargo truck to the said location.
