Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) operatives drawn from Kasarani Police Station on Monday, January 30, intercepted three men suspected of handling electronics stolen from Nairobi estates.
According to a statement from the investigative unit, police officers attached to the Kasarani area were on their routine patrols when they learned about the goods that were in transit.
Witnesses informed the police that the three were attempting to sell electronics to dealers within the Githurai 44 shopping centre hence raising an alarm.
Upon receiving the intel, the officers launched a prompt operation in a bid to foil the move with their manhunt resulting in the apprehension of three men who were using two vehicles.
The DCI sleuths discovered an assortment of electronics suspected to have been used in concealing their identity while in transit.
"A search conducted in their car led to the recovery of forged number plate stickers, a bunch of master keys, and a HP (Hewlett-Packard) Laptop," the DCI statement read in part.
In addition, the officers discovered a bunch of master keys and other paraphernalia believed to have been used by the suspects in breaking doors during their activities.
The police confirmed that the suspects were in their custody for further processing as they looked to gather more details regarding the operations.
They were set to be arraigned in court to face appropriate charges as established by the investigations.
The Monday incident was added to the series of rampant cases of theft and robbery in different parts of the city.
In a bid to quell the resurgence of criminal activities, the government adopted a raft of measures in response to the public outcry that caught the nation's attention.
Several suspects have since been arrested and with a few cases of shooting where the suspects failed to cooperate.
