Police who had earlier been tipped of the suspicious activities going on in the compound, screened the home for fingerprints and other crucial leads.

But the breakthrough was when the motorcycle used to transport the items led the officers to the owner's house, Edwin Mwiti in Kangemi who in turn led them to the house of Erick Omondi Opiyo, 37 and James Maina Mbiru.

The following items were retrieved ;
