Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have arrested yet another suspect on Monday in connection to the Ksh.72 million Nairobi West ATM heist.
Mary Kyalo was arrested at her house in Kalumoni village in Machakos County where Ksh. 2,389,000 was recovered.
This was after her grandson John Kamau Mulei, another suspect, was arrested at Muumandu in Machakos County and led the detectives to her house.
Mr. Mulei is the brother to Bernard Mwendwa who was also arrested on Thursday last week for allegedly being part of the gang that coordinated the heist.
The two, are currently in police custody waiting to be arraigned in court.
Kyalo’s house has been secured by the police as they are still combing the scene as further investigations continue.
On Thursday, September 5, 2019, criminals posing as police officers on escort robbed G4S personnel of Ksh.72 million in Nairobi West in an incident that did not involve gunshots or left anyone injured.
Sources revealed that the team had collected the cash from G4S headquarters on Witu Road with three men who appeared to be police officers.
A report from Lang’ata Police Station said the cash was picked up at around 6 am en route to the different bank ATMs.
When they arrived at the Standard Chartered Bank ATM in Nairobi West, the G4S team called their headquarters for the password to reload cash into the machine.
Once it was opened, the thugs immediately turned on them and made away with the cash.
