Five suspected thugs who attempted to break into Prime Bank OTC branch were arrested today morning by DCI detectives.
Charles Mulo, Fredrick Muderwa, Jesse Muriuki, Gabriel Mungai and Reuben Njuka were arrested by a team of officers from DCI and Kamukunji police Station.
The five attempted to break into Prime Bank located at Angle House along Ukwala lane, in downtown Nairobi in the wee hours of the morning.
Police say that the suspected criminals had booked themselves into guest rooms at the said building, which shares the same wall with the bank.
“They had planned to drill their way into the bank in the dead of the night. However detectives got wind of the plan and spoilt their party. They stormed into the building with a thud forcing the thugs to scamper, taking cover in the ceiling like cornered rat,” said the DCI in a statement.
The detectives however brought the ceiling down forcing the suspects to surrender themselves.
Three hacksaws, one knotted twisted rope, one metal driller, five metal bars, one metal cutter scissors and one suitcase were recovered.
