An abandoned and suspected-stolen motor vehicle was Sunday recovered in Gatonye area near the Delmonte shop in Murang'a County, central Kenya.
This follows a report by a night-shift driver at a local company who reported sighting the neglected vehicle that had no occupants.
At a visit to the scene, Police officers recovered an abandoned Toyota fielder car Reg No KBU xxx Grey in colour with a tampered ignition kit.
The vandalized vehicle was towed to the nearest police station after the scene was processed by the DCI Crime Scene personnel.
National Police Service (NPS) has since established the vehicle particulars in effort to identify the real owner and occupants at the time, their motive and safety.
“We understand that cases of motor vehicle theft have significantly reduced due to proper human and technology surveillance by the NPS jointly with motor-vehicle owners and private tracking companies.
We wish to encourage members of the public to share information on garages and private compounds that are illegally used to harvest motor parts from stolen vehicles as we jointly work to end this vice,” said the police.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
