Police recover 200 bags of missing coffee hidden in store

04 February 2016, 15:11 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - A parchment of 200 bags of coffee that had been reported stolen from Kagere Coffee Factory, Othaya Nyeri County, has been recovered in a store within the factory by police officers.

The factory’s manager had said the coffee worth KES 7 million was stolen on Sunday following a raid by unknown people.

Police has said the reported incident was a ploy to defraud farmers.

After investigations, police have discovered that the factory had more coffee than what it had collected from farmers.

Police said either factory management did not declare what farmers delivered or the excess coffee was sourced from elsewhere.

Othaya Deputy County Commissioner, Evans Ogwankwa, said the factory had an extra 7,757 kilograms of coffee, which is over 300 bags.

He maintained that no coffee had been stolen in the factory.

He supervised transportation of the coffee to Thika Coffee Mills after the factory was given a go ahead to sell their produce to a miller of their own choice.

“We involved the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and we decided to go through the farmers' deliveries since the alleged thieves broke into offices and stole records,” said Ogwankwa.

More than 600 bags of coffee worth over KES.100 million have been reported stolen from about ten factories in the past five months in Nyeri County.
