According to Myjoyonline, the incident occurred in the early hours of Monday morning in Danyame, a suburb of Kumasi, the regional capital of the Ashanti Region. Initial reports have it that the incident was aided by the fact that the police officer who was supposed to be on guard duty outside the Judge's residence was not at his post.
Mr. Erasmus Donkor, Joy News' Ashanti Regional Correspondent, stated that among the stolen items were laptops, very important documents, and an undisclosed amount of money.
“The residence is secluded building in this area,” noted Erastus. Joy News's correspondent also said that a razor blade had been utilized to cut open mosquito netting that covers the window of the house boy's room.

Mr. Donkor also said later that morning bag of documents was found by the watchman, but said that the bag had not been opened yet.
“We do understand that sometime after the break-in the Watchman found the bag of documents stolen from the residence under one of the mango trees [in the vicinity],” he said, although it is yet to be confirmed if all missing documents from the Justice's home have been recovered.
Mr. Erasmus Donkor said Kumasi Police have yet to name the police guard who was supposed to be on guard duty outside Justice Amedahe's residence. He also said Kumasi police have also remained "tight lipped" regarding further information on the incident.
