State prosecutor Hillary Songoyo said when the accused persons were arrested by police officers, some of the stolen property was allegedly found in their in Gatundu sub-County.

The two through their lawyer, John Ochang, argued that they were not involved in the robbery and knew nothing about the robbery even though the stolen items were found in their house.

Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Liz Gicheha, they pleaded to be released on bail.

Prosecutor Songoyo however opposed the bail application and asked the court to remand them as the main suspect who is the son of the elderly woman is still at large.
