Four arrested in connection with break-ins in Nairobi’s upmarket neigbourhoods


Police have arrested four people suspected to be behind a series of break-ins in Kileleshwa and Kilimani.

The four had 121 keys, an assortment of household electronics, several breaking tools, perfumes, clothes, Ipads, phones and other appliances.

Kilimani OCPD, Joseph Muthee said a car with a fake number plate was also seized from the suspects who were found in an apartment in one of the flats.

TIP OFF

“They were arrested by our officers in the morning, following a tip off and investigations,” Mr Muthee said.

Earlier, the four were arraigned in court but they did not take plea, as police requested for more time to detain them and facilitate investigations.

Mr Muthee has requested members of the public who have ever lost appliances to go to the Kileleshwa police station for identification.

They will, however, need to prove ownership.
