Police have arrested three vandals and a scrap metal dealer in Naivasha yesterday, Nakuru County.
The suspects, who had vandalised guardrails at the Naivasha interchange, led the police to a scrap metal dealer who buys from them.
Naivasha Sub-county deputy police commissioner Henry Mbogo confirmed the arrest saying the police were acting on a tip-off from the members of the public.
According to Mbogo, the suspects have been engaged in the illegal practices for two months now.
Samson Ole Kinne, Paul Mumo Kamau and Jamie Gibson were arrested last evening, after being found in possession of so many guardrails.
Mr Henry cautioned residents against vandalizing the guardrails, noting such actions alter with the safety of railway operations and pose a serious health risk to the lives of passengers, road users and motorists.
The four suspects are currently cooling their heels at Naivasha police station where they are being processed for placement in court on Thursday.
The latest development comes only few months when five suspects were nabbed in Molo Sub-County for allegedly vandalizing Street lights.
