Four suspects were apprehended on Thursday after police discovered a four drive car that had been stolen demolished in Ngong area, Kajiado.

The vehicle which was stolen on 7th of April, 2019 in the city centre was white. But today, when the officers got to the site, they found it black, with number plates changed.

Flying Squad boss Musa Yego said the suspects planned to sell it to unsuspecting buyer at Sh6.5 million.

“This is an organised crime in which vehicles are stolen, dismantled and spare parts sold,” Yego affirmed.

The suspects are anticipated in court on Friday.

Meanwhile, police have reinforced a search for two guns robbed from the owner of Osteria Del Chianti Restaurant along Lenana Road Mr Maurizio Corti on Saturday Night.

The search spread outside Nairobi after the bandits who grabbed two Ceska pistols with 30 bullets went into hiding.

The hotelier told police that the bandits vandalized the power supply to the restaurant before they grabbed the guns which were in a bag next to where he was seated.

He narrated that, “One of them placed something on my cheek which I think was a weapon and threatened to kill or harm me if I made any move. They then grabbed the bag which also had my personal belongings”

Corti is a licensed gun holder. It is believed the bandits are people who knew his movements.

He affirmed to the Standard that he uses the weapons for his protection.

Detectives from Kilimani Police Station visited the scene of the incident and interrogated the Italian businessman and his workers.

A team of detectives is trailing the bandits behind the scene.
