Police on the lookout for Kilimani ‘spiderman’

Authorities have launched a man-hunt for a burglar who has allegedly been terrorising residents of Kilimani, Nairobi.

The burglar nicknamed ‘Spiderman’, was captured by CCTV cameras about a week ago scaling the fence of residential apartments in Kilimani.

In the video, the man is seen climbing a perimeter wall trying to make his way into the first floor of one of the many classy apartments of Kilimani.

On that fateful day, it is said that the burglar made away with an unknown amount of money.

 Last week, the burglar is said to have stolen a foreigner’s money and firearm.

 “Normally he comes when everyone is asleep,” a resident who has suffered the wrath of the Kilimani ‘spiderman’ said.

Police suspect the burglar could be conspiring with security guards to accomplish his mission.

On Saturday night two employees of Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) were arrested trying to steal luggage straps.

The two employees were identified as Mr. Evans Okola Agunda and an Intern-Ms. Mercy Chepkorir.

In a video doing rounds on social media, one of the suspects believed to be Mr Okola, is seen packing a car next to a heap of airport luggage. He then leaves the car, walks to the heap, surveys the area, then picks up a luggage strap and puts it on the front seat of the car.

Elsewhere a high court advocate was murdered in his house at Moke Gardens, Machakos County.

The lawyer is reported to have been home alone during the time of the incident. 

Police found seven spent cartridges at the crime scene.
