DCI Engage Driver in Dramatic Chase Along Busy Highway

  • The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers engaged in a chase along the Naivasha highway with a driver who is suspected to have stolen a vehicle.

    While on patrol, the officers came across a vehicle that had foreign number plates and instructed the driver to stop his vehicle. However, he declined to stop, going against their instructions.

    It is at this point that a chase ensued between the DCI and the suspect near weigh-bridge after which he abandoned his vehicle and disappeared into the bush.

    The DCI are probing the matter so that the suspect can be brought to book.

    In a similar case, flying squad detectives acted on information they had received on a car theft syndicate and arrested a suspect on Friday at an apartment in Umoja, Nairobi County.

    The man, Duncan Ochieng Ouso was arrested for notoriously stealing motor vehicles and repainting them.

    On Twitter, the DCI officers confirmed they had confiscated two motor vehicles in the morning raid; a Toyota Premio and a Toyota Wish.

    "#FlyingSquad Detectives, acting on information, today arrested one male - Mr. Duncan Ochieng Ouso & confiscated Two motor vehicles; a Toyota Premio & a Toyota Wish.
