Nairobi - The Standard reports that during a dramatic operation along Mombasa Highway, an officer attached to police headquarters was among six suspected robbers who were arrested on Tuesday.

The officer, who is a motorbike rider, delivers mails to and from police headquarters in Nairobi.

His colleagues who arrested him near Mlolongo weighbridge said he and the other five accomplices including a woman had tried to hijack a trailer with pharmaceutical drugs valued at KES 30 million.

The 40 feet trailer was headed for Kampala, Uganda when the officer in full uniforms stopped it informing the driver he wanted to inspect it.

According to head of Special Crimes Prevention Unit Noah Katumo, the officer took possession of the driver’s driving licence and rode to a four wheel drive car that had been parked near there.
