Two suspects were yesterday arrested by police in Gilgil in possession of a stolen car as police hunt for the third suspect who is still at large.
Police said the trio are believed to have been linked to the spate of motorvehicle theft within Makongeni area in Thika Sub-County, Kiambu County.
Gilgil Sub-County John Onditi who confirmed the arrest said the duo were cornered by traffic police officers while making their way out of a busy traffic snarl-up aboard the stolen car.
According to Onditi, the vehicle was stolen on July 27,2021 along Kasarani Mwiki Road near Kangundo Road junction at around 4pm.
On interrogating the duo, the two failed to confirm that the car belonged to them. They were later bundled into awaiting police vehicle and moved to Gilgil town police station.
The two are being processed for placement in court today afternoon.
The latest report comes only one month when two suspected motorbike thieves were arrested by a swarm of bees in Langas estate in Eldoret town, Uasin Gishu County.
