Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Saturday, October 26 arrested a police officer involved in a robbery at Kayole Police Station.
Citizen Digital reported that with the help of police officers from Kayole, Corporal David Odhiambo Mito was flushed out of his Mihang'o home after he was linked to various criminal incidents reported in the area.
They found items belonging to the police ranging from uniforms, handcuffs, boots, knapsacks, belts and socks which were stocked in white and green sacks hidden inside the house.
Kayole Sub-county Police Commander Wilson Kosgei confirmed that Mito was arrested in the company of a civilian who was at his residence at the time.
"As officers, we only have three pairs of uniform, how can an officer have more than that? When the suspect noticed police presence in his house, he attempted to escape by driving off but police intercepted him," Kosgei narrated.
Kosgei also disclosed that members of the public were also involved in the arrest.
Mito, who had been posted to Tana River County, was linked to several crimes in the area and had a pending criminal case in court.
"The DCI detectives and my office received a tip-off from members of the public at around 10:00 am that there was information they wanted to share with me at Mihang'o. When we got there, they gave me information that made us raid Mito's home," he concluded.
This comes after the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) reported that officers who were vetted for wrongdoing in the past would continue to serve.
Daily Nation reported on Wednesday, October 23, that 300 police officers who were yet to receive their vetting reports would continue working.
"I want to announce here today and tell those officers not to be worried and should be settled and work. None of them has been found to be suitable or unsuitable. They now have a chance to do better," Eliud Kinuthia, NPSC chairman announced.
