Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have arrested two suspects believed to be part of a theft syndicate that mainly targets customers in high-end shopping malls.
The two have been identified as Rebecca Kinuthia Waruguru and Stephen Ochieng.
Police said the two were previously captured on CCTV stealing from people withdrawing money at ATMs in Garden City Mall and Thika Road Mall.
“We have questioned the two who have given us possible leads that will see more suspects arrested,” said Kasarani OCPD Peter Kimani.
Ochieng and Waruguru were arrested during an operation led by DCIO Mwenda Meeme in Kasarani on Thursday.
When questioned, Ochieng told detectives that he uses different vehicles because he operates a car hiring business while Ms. Waruguru said
she is a nurse aid.
Police also said Rebecca was filmed on several occasions making rounds at different shopping malls almost on a daily basis.
