Police officer among suspects arrested in connection with Manu Chandaria robbery
Police have arrested three suspects in connection with a robbery with violence incident that happened at prominent Businessman Manu Chandaria’s residence in Muthaiga on Sunday night.
Police Constable Jared Omboga Makambe is reported to have been on guard at the businessman’s residence during the incident.
He was arrested alongside two other private guards namely Judah Wafula and Stephen Omwega.
Preliminary investigations by the DCI have established that the businessman heard a loud bang at his main door and his efforts to call his gate’s security phone proved futile.
DCI detectives say that the two armed thugs then gained entry into his house and robbed him unknown amount of money and assorted jewelry at gunpoint
“The thugs then escaped while firing a G3 rifle alleged to have been stolen from the police officer on guard. Officers responding to the scene conducted thorough search leading to the recovery of the suspected stolen G3 rifle at a nearby bush,” said DCI in a tweet.
The trio are in lawful custody as further investigations ensue.
