Cases of theft have been increasing in the country and sometimes there is little to nothing that police can do about the thugs who make it away without ever being caught.

However, sometimes, some are caught and they face the wrath of the irate crowd that gathers around the scene and usually it never ends well.
This evening, a suspect who had been caught in possession of household items has been lynched by an irate mob in Thika.
The suspect is said to have gained entry to a rented apartment by the use of a master key and had just made it out when he was caught.
The incident took place in Biafra Estate that is found in the famous town of Thika in Kiambu County.
In his possession, the suspect had a Television Set and a gas cylinder which he had taken from the house.

The angry mob could hear none of his pleas and they ended up killing him using all sorts of crude weapons.
Members of the public are urged to desist from such acts of justice that are criminal in the face of the law. Rather, they should take the suspect to the police station or call the cops.
