They used explosives to open a room where they found sacks and boxes full of cash in $2 and $5 bond notes denominations amounting to $1 799 960. They loaded the cash into their vehicle and sped away. They then went on a spree buying luxury vehicles and rented houses uptown.

Two of the suspects, Godfrey Josi (38) and Taurai Dzingai (46) were hauled before a magistrate and remanded in custody to April 24 with instructions to apply for bail at the High Court. When Dzingai was arrested, police recovered $8 632 from his house and a silver Mazda CX7 bought a day after the robbery.

Josi immediately vacated the house he was renting and moved to an uptown apartment. He was later arrested following a tip-off and implicated the other suspects.
