Police 'masqueraders' arrested in Nakuru

03 December 2013, 15:17

Nairobi - Police in Nakuru have arrested three men suspected to be behind the spate of robberies in the town.

The suspects are said to be masquerading as police officers and operate in counterfeit police gear and handcuffs.

The trio was arrested after a botched robbery at the Diamond Trust Bank.

Nakuru Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD), Benard Kioko, said police were acting on a tip off by citizens who suspected the individuals standing by a bank’s entrance of a malicious intent to commit a crime.

This necessitated the police to set a trap that led to the arrest of the three.

The fourth suspect is at large after evading arrest.

Kioko called on members of the public that had fallen victim to the robberies to report to the Central Police Station in Nakuru to identify the suspects.

He said police had ascertained that the suspects were using a hired car during the robberies.

Cases of bank customers being robbed by individuals disguised as police officers have been on the rise in recent months despite the government pledging measures to curb the upsurge.
