Police arrested a man who vandalized Safaricom telecommunications equipment worth more than Ksh2M.
The detectives confiscated the telecommunications equipment he had stolen from the broadcasting station.
According to a statement posted on DCI's social media accounts, Leny Ng'ang'a, posing as a Safaricom engineer on a maintenance assignment, gained access to a transmitting station in Murang'a, after convincing the guard to let him in.
"The guard became suspicious of the man's activities and alerted the police who immediately rushed to the scene," part of the statement read.
Noticing that his blanket had been blown, the suspect escaped by jumping into his vehicle and accelerating, prompting a chase.
"After a few kilometers after Saba Saba, the resistant off-road police machine caught up with the suspect, forcing him to stop to surrender," the statement added.
Police report that a further search of the suspect's car led to the discovery of telecommunications equipment, suspected of having been vandalized elsewhere.
The suspect's motor vehicle has since been impounded and he will be brought to justice on Monday, October 18 to answer for his crimes.
