Lift heist

Meanwhile, four people including a police officer will today be arraigned for robbing an accountant of 50,000 USD (Sh5,572,500).

The four – a Ruiru-based police constable and four staffers at Mitsumi Business Park – were arrested yesterday for accosting the accountant while inside an elevator as she was heading to deposit the cash in the bank, all armed with pistols.

According to a DCI report, one of the suspects who is a plumber at Mitsumi Business Park was found with over Sh1 million (10,000 USD) hid at his house in Nairobi’s Huruma estate.

Some 12,300 USD was found in another suspect's house at Kawangware. He had concealed the money in a water dispenser.

Police also recovered another Sh1 million, a brand new TV and two mobile phones from a third suspect's residence in Mathare area one.
