Nyeri police boss Kirunya Limbitu has dismissed claims that an Occurrence Book (O B) and a cell register were stolen from Mweiga police station.
Kirunya said the alleged lady Rita Akinyi Omondi presented herself to the police station and recorded statement on the matter.
Akinyi, 23, is a business lady at Kieni who had been said to have taken the O.B book and a cell register after confrontations with her spouse who is a police officer at Mweiga police station.
It was reported that they disagreed over money, after which Akinyi decided to leave the station with the said documents.
The books were reportedly found in her house the following day, but the police boss said at thAkinyi unfounded the allegations.
In her statement, she said that she was taking beer at Riverside Pub with her boyfriend when the incident occured.
Kirunya said the lady took with her three story books which were at the report desk but not the O.B.
The owner of the story books was not identified.
“No way can a police station operate without an Occurrence Book or a register. Initial reports were allegations not the factual statement,” the police boss pointed out.
