Police shoot dead suspected robber, recover items

10 January 2014, 18:34 Joseph Mukubwa

Nyeri - Police in Nyeri County Thursday shot dead one suspected robber who was among two others who were planning to raid a supermarket in Tetu.

The suspect was shot dead around 7.30 pm at Ithe Kahuno area while his accomplices escaped into the darkness.

Nyeri Central OCPD, John Lempishiro, said they also recovered a pistol with three rounds of ammunition.

A Probox vehicle with masked registration numbers was also impounded.

On another development, he said another robber suspect has been arrested and a vehicle impounded.

Lempishiro said the suspect, who is currently being locked at Nyeri Divisional Police Station, was driving the vehicle and is helping police with investigations in order to ensure the others are arrested.

He said the vehicle is normally used by thugs to ferry stolen goods. Some blankets, a mattress and a TV were recovered from the vehicle.

The police boss assured members of the public that patrols have been boosted to curb crime in the area.
