The forty days of a thief came to an end on Sunday for a criminal gang that has been terrorising residents of Kilimani and Kileleshwa estates.
Detectives at Kilimani Police Station nabbed the three burglars after a victim reported at the Station prompting the police to swing into action. One of the suspects has been on the police most wanted list after she jumped bail thrice, having been arrested and arraigned in court for the same crime committed within Kilimani area.
The three, Emmah Wambui Wanjiru, Elizabeth Akinyi Abuto and Wilson Marwa Giyabe, were arrested near Nakumatt Mega as they were shopping. Police had been trailing them for two days.
One of the suspects, Wilson Marwe, is believed to have been helping the thieving ring find a market of the stolen goods across the border in Tanzania.
According to police, the gang broke into about 20 homes within Kilimani and Kileleshwa area during the Easter period.
Among the things confiscated from the suspects were master keys and other crude weapons believed to be used by the suspects to break into houses.
