The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has recovered mobile phones worth Sh.120 million that were stolen on transit from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
The phones were recovered after the detectives raided Muimara Estate court number 70, in Imara Daima On Monday, where 629 cartons containing the phones were recovered.
The phones were stolen on April 10th while on transit from African Cargo at JKIA to Rolling Cargo Ltd warehouse in Eastleigh.
“The said cargo parked in 750 cartons was being ferried on an Isuzu FRR lorry Reg. No. KBZ 628X driven by 40-yr-old Daniel Kavuti. The lorry was diverted from the designated route only to be found abandoned along Masai Road while empty,” DCI said
Four suspects were arrested by a joint team from Nairobi Area and Buruburu and upon interrogation, they led the detectives to the house.
The four are 41-year-old Mwangangi Kyalo, Jacob Waithaka (39), Patrick Irungu (45) and Newton Mwenda (35).
The sleuths are still searching for the Lorry driver who is believed to be in possession of the remaining cartons.
“Efforts to recover the rest of the cartons underway. The lorry driver who is still at large is advised to surrender himself at any police station near him,” DCI said.
