Dubai security agents have released the identity of the Kenyan man who made away with KSh 137 million. The agents have also released photos of the man said to be Charles Karanja as the massive manhunt continues.

Khaleej Times reports that Charles who was working as a security guard disappeared after stealing the money from a vehicle that was transporting the cash to an ATM at a popular shopping mall in the city.

Karanja is said to have distracted his colleagues before disappearing with the heist equal to Dh5 million on March 3 at around 10.30pm.

He lied to them that he was going to the restrooms only for them to discover later that he had made away with the whole amount that was being transported to an ATM at a popular shopping mall in the city.
