Female cop faced robbery with violence charges in Mombasa court.

According to Mombasa court papers, the officer identified as Hellen Wanjiku, alongside her accomplices identified as Fredrick Gateri and Harrison Biko, pinned Mama Ngina drive as the site where they would steal from members of the public.

The court heard that the officer often toured the drive, in bid to time their to park their cars.

In a report produced infront of Mombasa principal magistrate Vincent Adet, Frederick Muchiri, the probing officer, explained before the court that the three suspects tried to steal from a vehicle parked at Mama Ngina.

However, they escaped the scene after they got wind that the driver was still inside.

"On June 30, the same accused persons toured mama Ngina to steal from innocent Kenyans. They were later cornered following sting operation report on their suspicious activities," Muchiri added.

Muchiri decided to have the three held for five days to allow the police to conclude probes.

Adet agreed and ruled out that the trio be held at the Port police station for four days.

Meanwhile, the police are still going on with their investigations.
