Thugs steal coffee worth KES 700 000 from factory

05 December 2015, 10:03 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - A  gang of about 12 people broke into a Murang’a-based coffee factory and stole 30 bags of coffee worth KES 700 000.

The goons broke into the stores of Gachirago factory in Kamacharia location and packed coffee beans to bags before ferrying them to a waiting vehicle.

Three guards who were on duty reported the gang tied and covered them with sacks before executing its mission.

The gang is reported to have traveled to Gachirago factory after a failed theft attempt at the nearby Wathenge factory where they were unable to access the factory stores due to its proximity to Murang’a-Kiria ini road.

Confirming the incident, Murang’a East OCPD, Johnstone Limo said it was a well calculated inside job as the factory management has failed to implement security measures ordered by the county security committee.

Limo wondered how the gang spent hours packing the parchment coffee into gunny bags they found in the store and later transferred the loot to the vehicle.

“Last year, management of all coffee factories were issued with directives on how to tighten security in their factories but it seems some are reluctant and that’s why coffee theft is reemerging,” said the OCPD.

He said police are on the ground to investigate and arrest the culprits appealing to the residents to avail information to the police that may help to weed out coffee thieves.

The theft at Gachirago occurred barely one week after Wanjengi coffee factory in Kahuro Sub County also lost 28 bags of coffee.
