Four suspects among them two security guards were on Tuesday night arrested following a botched ATM robbery attempt in Ruiru town.
The four are KK security guard Hillary Ng’eno, 37, G4S security guard Jared Nyang’au, 31, boda-boda rider Douglas Momanyi, 34, and Jacob Barasa, 43.
The four unsuccessfully attempted to empty Sh100 million from the ATM belonging to Barclays Bank several times, according to Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
“A mobile phone they were using to make contact with a source and a nylon sack they were to use in loading the money and a motorcycle they were to flee on among the seized items,” DCI said.
The four are in police custody pending investigations into the matter and arraignment in court.
In April this year, more than Sh14 million was stolen from three Barclays Bank ATMs in Nairobi. The ATMs were located in Mutindwa area, Kenyatta National Hospital, and Mater Hospital.
