Two AP officers linked to Nairobi West heist arrested in Kisii, Kendu Bay

Two Administration Police officers linked to the Ksh. 72million heist in Nairobi West have been arrested.

Chris Ayenda Machogu was arrested in Kisii and police recovered Ksh. 4million.

He reportedly led detectives to to his accomplice Vincent Wycliff Owuor in Kendu Bay.

Owuor was found at Seko Village with Ksh. 3million and a Subaru Forester with Registration Number KCB 649Z which is believed to have been stolen.

 

It is believed that the two APs are among the thugs who orchestrated the Nairobi West heist at the Standard Chartered Bank ATM on Thursday morning.

Three men allegedly posing as police officers escorted G4S personnel who were transferring cash to the ATM.

They reportedly turned on the G4S team after a password was sent from their headquarters to open the machine.

They escaped with cash boxes and sacks of money from different banks.

The empty boxes were found the next day in Thogoto Forest, Kiambu, empty.

Six G4S employees were on Friday arrested and arraigned.

They are in custody at Langata Police Station for 7 days to allow police to complete investigations.

Three other suspects were arrested on Saturday morning  and two vehicles, believed to have been used in the heist, recovered at a garage in Kikuyu Town.

One of the vehicles, a Toyota Noah, was already undergoing a paint job.
