By Brian Ukaya | Feb 22nd 2019 | 1 min read

The proverbial 40 days for three women and a man captured on CCTV breaking into cars at a parking lot have elapsed.

The four were identified as Joseph Kuria Wangari, Rosaline Wangari Mwihaki, Jane Muthoni Ndung’u and Rose Wairimu Kihato.

They were breaking into vehicles parked outside Jambo Hotel in Mukuyu trading centre.


In the CCTV footage seen by Standard Digital, the suspects are seen entering the hotel parking lot aboard a Toyota Fielder.

They later alight and one of the suspects goes directly to a parked car and breaks into it as his accomplices keep guard.

After stealing valuables from the car, the suspect moves to another before they drive off in the vehicle they had come with.

The whole incident took place within five minutes, typical of a movie robbery.


Police tracked the Toyota Fielder with preliminary investigations revealing they had hired it as a taxi.

The four appeared before Murang’a Resident Magistrate Sheila Nyaga and are yet to take plea.


The detectives probing the matter requested that they be remanded for five days to enable them complete investigations.

The magistrate granted their plea and directed the suspects to appear in court on Tuesday, February 26.

Last year police in Naivasha arrested two suspects including a man attached to the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) in connection with motor vehicle theft.
