Officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have apprehended four individuals in connection with the theft of KSh 94 million from Quickmart Supermarket.

Four individuals linked to the robbery of money have been apprehended in various locations within Nairobi.

“DCI Officers from Nairobi in pursuit of the Kshs 94,918,750/= stolen from Quickmart Supermarket on Nov 6, 2023, Wells Fargo Company employees on transit to Family Bank, have arrested four suspects,” read a statement by the National Police Service in part.

“Ismael Patrick Gitonga, the owner and driver of motor vehicle registration number KBM 751W Fielder suspected to have been used to ferry the stolen cash from the escort van, was arrested within Rongai area and the motor vehicle traced to Njiru within Kayole.”

“Michael Matolo Njeru and Samwel Onyango were arrested in Njiru while in the process of modifying the vehicle to possibly conceal its identity.”

“Martin Nderi Nganga was arrested in Kasarani and Kshs 9,101,300/= recovered at his rented house.”

A cashbox was also retrieved from a woodland near Gataka Market in Karen Estate.

Ongoing endeavors are being made to locate, apprehend, and reclaim the remaining pilfered funds.

The legal proceedings are currently underway, with the Regional Criminal Investigations Office in Nairobi persisting in their investigative efforts.

According to reports, Anthony Ndiuki and Charles Mugetha were inside the company’s vehicle and departed without police escort.

After committing the heist, they abandoned the vehicle in the Dafam area South C, near the southern bypass.

The police noted that the heist had been carefully planned, as the suspects discreetly left the company’s headquarters without the usual police accompaniment.

The initial alert about their suspicious departure came from Administration Police (AP) officers who were originally assigned to accompany them.

In response to the AP officers’ alarm, the firm’s investigation manager promptly informed the Akila Police Station in Lang’ata about the incident.

It’s worth noting that security companies offer cash-in-transit services to banks and businesses involved in significant financial transactions.
