Peter Muiya Irungu, a man suspected of stealing from a church was on Friday, February 14, 2020, arrested in Murang’a county.

This came after the suspect was caught stealing from the James Cathedral Church in Murang’a town in a recording by hidden CCTV cameras.

In the video, the suspect is seen using a thin ‘special’ wire to draw out notes from the safe through a tiny space.


It is believed that the wire tore some of the notes in the safe.

Speaking for the church, the leadership said that it was the rising concern over the loss of church money that pushed them to secretly install secret cameras.

Muiya surprised the church as he was a regular congregant of the church.

Reports indicate that he had a habit of staying late in the church for prayers and after everybody had left would use his wire to steal from the church.

The suspect is in lawful custody and is set to be arraigned at the Murang’a law courts to face charges of burglary.
