Suspected Gangsters Arrested

05 April 2012, 12:48 Tony Karomo

Police in Imenti North District of Meru County have arrested a gang of 5 men in connection to the Monday morning robbery incident involving a
Broadways Thika Company vehicle waylaid along the Meru-Maua Road.

Confirming the arrest on Thursday, area OCPD James Kithuka said the gang waylaid the Mitsubishi Canter vehicle commandeering the driver and his conductors to stop making away with KES. 87, 850/= together with a number of mobile phones belonging to the driver and their conductor at Nchiru area.

The OCPD said so far police have recovered KES. 56, 000/= and mobile phones from the suspects who were arrested at various local markets
enjoying themselves.

Police suspect the net amount is with the suspects’ families or accomplices since at the time of the arrest the suspects were with their families and friends.

A G3 riffle without a magazine was recovered hidden at Nchiru forest in the vast Lower Imenti Forest and police suspect it is among the arms the gang has been using to waylay wananchi along the road.

The OCPD said further investigations are ongoing thanking the Kenya Highways Authority for clearing the bushes along the road that have been the gangs’ hiding place.
