Suspected motorbike thief arrested in southwestern Kenya

A wanted suspect who is part of a wider network of criminals targeting motorcycle riders and stealing their motorbikes has been arrested.

The notorious suspect Samuel Oluoch alias Dozi was arrested by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations detectives based in Migori county, southwestern Kenya, and three motorbikes were recovered in his possession.

The 26-year-old suspect, who possesses a mechanic, was arrested following a tip-off from public members.

“In a crime that appears to be gaining currency in the country, the syndicate mainly targets the popular Boxer make that sells like hot cakes in the black market,” said DCI.

Detectives further established that Dozi’s network of criminals extends to a nearby prison, where he is in constant contact with a robbery suspect.

He is currently in custody as detectives grill him for more information into the operations of the syndicate.
