Six suspects in car break-in case to remain in custody


The four police officers and two other people suspected of breaking in and stealing from a stationery motor vehicle will spend the weekend in custody pending the ruling on their detention on Monday.  

According to a statement by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP), this comes after the prosecution made an application to detain them for 14 days to complete investigations on the alleged crime.

The six suspects are alleged to have stolen from a locked motor vehicle,handling stolen property and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Prosecution stated that the four suspects are police officers and are likely to interfere with witnesses and the investigation process, thanks to the special skills they posses and that the other two suspects place of abode is unknown hence pose a flight risk.

The prosecution further submitted to the court that it has the justification to limit bail/bond under article 24 of the constitution.

Geoffrey Onsarigo ruled that the four police officers will be detained in Kayole Police Station while the other two will be detained in Ruai Police Station until Monday when he will deliver the rulling.
