Police in Nyandarua South have rescued a three month old baby and arrested four suspects in connection with conspiracy to steal a child.
Two suspects among them a house help and her husband were arrested in Kangeta area of Meru County while the other two were arrested in Githurai in Nairobi.
According to Nyandarua South OCPD Samson Munyao, police managed to arrest the house help at a home in Meru County after she allegedly stole the child identified as Kelvin Kimanji Njenga when the parents were away.
He said the child went missing on March 10 this year moments after the child's mother Grace Wambui, 25, left after suckling her and returned to her place of work at Muki Sacco.
The OCPD said that it was a challenging task to trace the house help since she had used a fake name and a stolen identification Card.
He said mobile phone numbers she had provided to her employer had also been acquired through dubious means making the search for the child difficult.
However, through the modern technology, the suspects were tracked down to Meru's Kangeta trading centre where the child was found alive.
"It has been a long search since the names she provided were difficult. However, we traced her through her mobile phone which was also registered in also a different name," he said.
Munyao noted that despite arresting the suspects, their details were still scanty since they do not have official names and hence the matter requires further investigations to also unravel the syndicate.
He called on employers to keenly scrutinize details of the people they employ as house help to ensure they do not engage criminals disguising as job seekers.
The suspects are being held at Kinangop Police Station as investigations continue.
