Notorious robbery with violence suspect arrested in Nyeri

Police in Nyeri have arrested a notorious robbery with violence suspect.

Kimaitho is a wanted suspect for violent robberies, peddling, mugging and phone snatching.

Upon search, the suspect who has spent several years in various lock up facilities was found with 12 sachets of heroin, nine rolls of bhang, a machete and two kitchen knives tucked in his waist.

Since his release from prison in December 2023, the known but slippery suspect has been implicated in various attacks reported at Weitemere, Majengo, Kiawara and Blue Valley areas of Nyeri.

The ex-convict has been remanded at King’ong’o prison without the option of a bail following his criminal record.
