Police have arrested four suspects from a neighbouring country on suspicion they were smuggling two lorries transporting stolen motorbikes to Moyale town, Marsabit County.

The arrest comes days after police raided a garage in Eastleigh last Sunday and found 25 motorbikes.

According to Maurice Nyangao, the chief executive officer of Hi-Line Motors Ltd, which deals in motorbikes, they used trackers to trace one of the stolen motorcycles.

“We saw on the tracking system the motorbike was moving towards Thika in a truck and we called the multi-agency team. Within one hour, it was at Kenol, Murang’a County, and it’s here that we knew the destination was northern Kenya. Police set up a roadblock at Isiolo and Nanyuki, and between Isiolo and Moyale,’’ said Nyangao, whose company lost seven new motorbikes last month.

The arrest was made at 12am at Nanyuki.
