The GH 30, 000.00 was recovered by the police, and they were successfully prosecuted .
"We have displayed their photographs in accordance with our new standard operating procedure because the two have been officially convicted and are no longer suspects," Ghana Police official release said.

The Ghanaian police service had reassured the public that the Police Department will continue to battle crime and prosecute criminals.
