Robbery suspects arrested, firearms recovered

Robbery with violence suspects have been arrested and two firearms linked to various robberies in Nairobi and its environs recovered.

The suspect, other than in Nairobi, has terrorised residents of Nakuru, Kiambu, Muranga and Kajiado counties.

The suspects, identified as Ezekiel Kiarie and David Mwangi alias Mzae, who have been on the run for the past few days, were arrested along Limuru road – as one Kiarie tried to escape with his family from the city to his rural home in Dundori, Nyandarua County.

Detectives intercepted a Mitsubishi canter registration number KAM 231J, that was ferrying the suspect, his family members and their belongings to Nyandarua, after realizing that detectives were closing in on them.

After conducting search in the vehicle, a Czeska pistol serial number B022944 with a magazine loaded with 2 rounds of 9mm ammunitions and a CZ P-07 pistol serial number C626319 with a magazine loaded with 12 rounds of 9mm calibre were recovered.

The firearms have been linked to various incidents where victims have lost money immediately after making transactions in banks.

The two suspects, David Mwangi alias Mzae, and Ezekiel Kiarie Njoki, are currently in custody being interrogated in relation to their crimes, before being arraigned in court tomorrow.
