The suspects then allegedly stripped the house of all movable items, during the period and sold the items to dealers at the Panteka second-hand materials market in Tipper Garage, Gwarimpa. 
According to a security source involved in the investigation, by the time family members of the former president were made aware of the looting early this month, the house had been stripped bare. 
Following the arrest of the policemen who were suspected of burgling the house, the two dealers who had been the main recipients of the stolen items were said to have closed down their shops at Panteka market and fled. The house which was burgled was inhabited by Jonathan about a year when he was vice president. 
His mother was said to have assumed residence there after Mr. Jonathan moved to the Aso Rock Villa upon becoming Acting President in 2010.
