Drama happened in Thika Town after a middle-aged man allegedly lost Sh5.7 million under unclear circumstances.
The man had parked his car, locked the money inside before going to relieve himself in a public toilet in the town, oblivious of a gang that was trailing him.
According to a police report, the victim, Mathew Githinji, had withdrawn the money from at least three banks and put the same in his car before he drove to the said public toilet.
In a bizarre turn of event, when Githinji returned back to his car, he found the car broken into and the money missing.
Police are now looking for the gang that broke into Githinji's car and stole the money.
Police have warned members of the public against carrying large sums of money.
This is the latest robbery involving someone withdrawing money from the bank. Police say a special team has been established to crack down on criminal gangs targeting bank customers withdrawing huge amounts of cash.
