Man arrested with fake money worth KES 4.9 million

04 December 2013, 13:46 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - Police in Nakuru have arrested a middle-aged man after he was found in possession of KES 1.5 million in fake one thousand shilling notes, and another 40 000 in fake us dollars.  The man is suspected to be the main dealer of fake money in Nakuru.

According to the Nakuru OCPD Bernard Muindi Kioko, Andrew Onyango Ochieng was arrested following a tip off from members of the public.

OCPD Kioko said the suspect had registered himself as a herbalist, but on following the information given by the public, he was found to be possessing fake currency worth KES 4.9 million which led to his arrest.

“Our officers managed to arrest the suspect in his house behind Signature Club, where he was operating under the disguise of a herbalist; on arrest the officers found him in possession of fake currency,” said Kioko.

Among other items recovered was some paraphernalia believed to be used to defraud unsuspecting clients.

He further asked residents to be extra careful when transacting as most of the money launderers target busy merrymakers during the festive seasons.

According to the OCPD, the launderers also target mobile money transfer business operators where they deposit fake money.
