The cartel is suspected to be operating in different parts of the country.
Kakamega OCPD Joseph Omijah has now called on security agents to be extra vigilant while inspecting motorcycles within their regions.
At the same, Mr Omijah urged the local authorities to register motorcycles operating in their areas of jurisdiction to enable them easily identify unfamiliar ones.
“We arrested four riders, two owners and a manager. We are pursuing the two buyers who are still at large,” Omijah stated.
He said the alleged manager upon interrogation revealed that the owner of the motorcycles was in Nairobi.
“We are liaising with our colleagues in Nairobi to get hold of the alleged owner as we intensify our investigation,” Omijah added.
He said the local council should register and allocate stages for motorcycles and mark them in alphabetical order.
“It will be easy to track any motorcycle and its rider,” he said.
Omijah explained that police mounted an operation within Kakamega town following a tip off and recovered six out of the eight bikes stolen from Nairobi.
“We are yet to find the two remaining bikes, which had already been sold,” he said.
