According to the DCI, the detectives are still carrying out investigations.
All the vehicles recovered have been taken by detectives and will be used as exhibits.
In February this year, detectives unmasked a syndicate that had been cloning number plates and fraudulently registering cars for sale.
They arrested 19 employees of the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) who were helping in cloning the number plate.
This is after the number plate of Toyota Ractis (KCN 340E) believed to have been used in the 14 Riverside Drive attack was found to be a duplicate of an existing one.
