Police in Nairobi are pursuing two thugs who broke into a wines and spirit shop last week and made away with alcohol worth Sh450,000.
In CCTV footage that has been released to the public, one of the robbers is seen ransacking shelves as he hands over their loot to his accomplice who is standing on the other side of the counter.
The face of the thug who is inside the outlet is well captured while the other one is not.
