Man arrested over stolen vehicles

By CYRUS OMBATI | March 17th 2014


Nairobi, Kenya: Police are holding a man after eight cars believed to have been stolen were found in his compound in Umoja Three estate, Nairobi.

The cars, which include a black Toyota Prado were found parked in the compound on Sunday morning by police, who had been tipped off by a neighbour who spotted one that was allegedly stolen in September last year in Ruai.

The neighbour told police he saw his friend’s car, parked in the compound and  enquired from him when he sold it.

“The friend called the owner seeking to know when he sold the car but was stunned to be informed it was stolen last year. It was then that we were informed of the presence of the vehicles there,” said Buruburu police boss Richard Kerich.

Steve Biko , a brother to the original owner of the said car, said they had been tracing the whereabouts of the car since September.

“It is the friend who tipped us and we hope we will uncover the truth,” said Biko.

Meanwhile, a group of residents of Diamond Park estate have vowed to ignore an order by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei that they move out of the place because the land belongs to the Veterinary department. The group said the order is illegal and aimed at inciting the public.
