Over the last few months, the number of criminal activities in major cities have escalated significantly with criminal gangs causing residents sleepless nights. 

The criminal gangs have been deploying new techniques to rob unsuspecting Kenyans with the latest reported in Nairobi's Eastleigh area. According to a report by a local publication, there has been an increase in the number of reported cases involving stolen motorcycles from licensed dealers. 

Members of the gang usually use innocent youths to purchase motorcycles on loans before delivering the bikes to a garage in Eastleigh. The gang reportedly targets desperate and jobless youths whom they give Ksh 15000 as the deposit for the motorcycle.

After delivering the motorcycle, the youths are paid Ksh 5000 as payment for their services. The criminals then go ahead and remove the trackers before selling the motorcycles or even use them to commit crimes. 

After a month of suffering, police partnered with a local dealer to fix two trackers in the bikes. The criminals managed to remove the first tracker but were not aware of the second tracker. This led police to them. They were found hiding at a garage in the Eastleigh area. 

Over 10 new motorcycles were recovered with 14 people arrested. Police have vowed to crack down on the rest of the members of the Notorious syndicate. 

Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
