Police investigations revealed that the alleged thief was a 23-year-old woman, who had previously been arrested for similar offences. They found out that the woman had made a duplicate set of keys and used them to steal the car. She had also sold the original set for K40,000 (KSh 259,000) to a local auto parts shop. The police believe that her intent was to use the money to celebrate International Women's Day.
Upon further investigation, they discovered that the woman had two other accomplices. The two were identified as Richard Chanda and William Chanda. Richard was a 28-year-old man with a long history of car theft and William was a 25-year-old man with similar charges.
The police have successfully arrested the three suspects and they are currently in custody awaiting trial. Whilst in custody, they are reported to be in good health and spirits. They will be held until their case has been heard in court and will face a stiff punishment if found guilty.
