Police in Laikipia have launched a hunt for a man suspected to be behind a car theft syndicated after several vehicle registration number plates were found at his home in Kakurat, Kieni East.

The detectives drawn from the Directorate Criminal Investigations (DCI) also recovered a stolen Toyota Belta at the suspect’s home.
