Theft in a police station
03 December 2012, 15:24
Properties whose value is not yet known were stolen on Sunday night after gang broke into Kijiwetanga police post.
The suspected criminals are said to have raided the police post where they broke two doors which were not locked and disappeared with it.
Kijiwetanga area Chief Baya Thoya confirmed the incident and said they were looking for the doors and the suspects.
He said that the unknown people who committed the crime fled to unknown destinations.
He said the police post was established when the national examinations kicked off, adding that officers were not using it at night.
“They raided the police post at night on Saturday and made away with two windows which were not locked because locks had not been fixed and we are still tracing them,” he told the media.
However Malindi police boss Kiprono Lang’at dismissed the claims saying it was mere propaganda meant to taint the police force reputation.
He said that such information was given to journalist by people with their own hidden agendas.
“We know there are some people paid to give journalist information which is not true and we are looking for them because they are doing so to tarnish our reputation,” said the OCPD on telephone.
During a past workshop with the Media Council of Kenya, journalists had reiterated that the OCPD was not cooperating with them due to personal differences between him and his seniors.
