Approximately 15 minutes later, Hanan Supangkat arrived at his residence in an Innova Hybrid. Subsequently, KPK officials entered the house. Shortly after, KPK members emerged and proceeded to inspect four of Hanan Supangkat's luxury vehicles, namely a Mini Cooper, Innova Hybrid, Toyota Alpard, and BMW X7.

About 12 KPK members entered the residence carrying two suitcases.
