An unknown number of thugs on Sunday stole a police car in Zimmerman, Nairobi before dumping it 20km away in Ruiru Town.
The gang stole the Saloon car outside an apartment in Zimmerman where the officer had parked it on Sunday morning.
The officer, who is attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters, had gone to visit a workmate at about 5 am.
When the officer returned to the vehicle that bore private registration numbers at about 8 am he found it missing and a search was launched.
At about 6 pm, a resident of Ruiru called the police to inform them that a strange car was parked outside his house.
Police who reported to the scene confirmed it was the stolen vehicle.
“We believe the thieves realized who the owner of the car was before they decided to leave it there,” said a policeman at the scene.
Other officers said the gang may have been on the run and wanted a getaway car to leave Zimmerman when they stumbled on the police car.
Nairoberry in all its glory!!
