Robbery With Violence Suspect Arrested In Nyahururu Town
A Robbery with violence suspect was arrested on Sunday evening in Nyahururu town, central Kenya and crude weapons believed to be used in robbery incidents recovered.
The suspect was arrested after detectives on a different mission came across a suspicious-looking vehicle with an extra pair of plate numbers inside the vehicle.
Upon conducting a thorough search of a white Toyota Noah vehicle, the sleuths recovered crude weapons, six mobile phones, assorted goods in a gunny bag and clothes belonging to women believed to be robbery victims.
"When the detectives based at the operations support unit compared notes with their counterparts at Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Laikipia, it was discovered that the vehicle was on their radar after being involved in various robberies within Nyahururu, Ol-joro-orok, Nyandarua north, Olkalou, Subukia, Laikipia West, Kirima, Gilgil and Naivasha sub counties among others," said the police.
Police further revealed that four complainants have already come forward and positively identified the arrested suspect, William Mwangi, who revealed that he and his accomplices, still at large, had travelled from Nairobi to commit robberies in the said areas.
The suspect is currently at OlKalou police station being processed for arraignment as detectives intensify a manhunt for his accomplices, who are currently on the run.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
