Police have unearthed what could be a well-connected syndicate that has been stealing motorbikes from dealers.
Acting on a tip-off from a motorcycle dealer, the officers recovered tens of motorbikes from a garage in Nairobi’s Eastleigh area.
According to the police, unsuspecting youth are lured into the syndicate by the thieves with a promise of making a quick buck.
The youth are given Sh15,000 to take a loan from the dealers, after which they are given Sh5,000 for depositing the motorbikes to the thieves.
Once the thieves receive the bikes, they take them to a garage where the trackers are disabled with an hour.
After losing many motorbikes from his dealership, Maurice Nyangao, Chief Executive Officer of Hi-Line Motors said they decided to fit one of the bikes with two trackers. The thieves managed to remove one.
It is this second tracker which led them and the police to the garage in Eastleigh.
