The robbers were arrested after one of them, Godfrey Josi (41), was caught in Damafalls.

He then revealed the whereabouts of his accomplices identified as Richard Mutanga (40), Zvidozvashe Zuda (35), Peter Mushipe (40), Valentine Mutasa (30), the deceased Benjamin Craig Musasa (39) and Decide Rice.
