Police on Tuesday arrested three suspects accused of siphoning over Ksh.970,000 from a 67-year-old woman’s bank account.

The three; Anthony Babu Kaira, Kelvin Maina and Joseph Kariuki, were arrested in an intelligence operation by DCI detectives in Thika West.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the suspects wired the money out of Faith Wanjiku’s account, through the mobile banking application, in about four transactions.

“The amount was transacted in four series using the Eazzy App in the sequence; Antony Kaira (Ksh.300,030), Kelvin Maina (Ksh. 300,030), Vivian Jelagat (Ksh300,030) and Ksh. 70K to various Equitel phone numbers,” said the DCI.

The suspects are set to be arraigned in court on Wednesday as a search for more probable perpetrators continues.
