The guns were retrieved after the reinforcement patrol teams ransacked an Urvan bus suspected to be linked to the same robbery without occupants which had the pump-action guns and about 100 rounds of live AK47 ammunitions.

So far two suspects Prince Ankrah and Albert Buckson who were found in a parked taxi cab with the engine on few meters from the scene and the three private security details who were on duty are assisting in the investigation.

The robbers fired into the vault lock, chiseled the wall to the vault to gain entrance, and stole from the safe.
