He and others including three police officers were also charged with robbery with violence after allegedly robbing G4S staff of the Sh74 million and 38 cassettes, 13 purge bins and 13 canvas bags, totaling Sh75.9 million.
They were also charged with malicious damage to property after destroying property belonging to G4S valued at Sh1,267,000 in Thogoto forest, Kiambu.
These were 36 cassettes and 11 purge bins.
He and six others were among the suspects released by chief magistrate Francis Andayi on a Sh500,000 cash bail after their lawyer Cliff Ombetta claimed they could not raise the initial Sh1 million bail.
“I have considered that the seven who have been in police custody for about two weeks do not have the capacity to secure Sh1 million bond. They will deposit Sh500,000 bond and two similar sureties,” Andayi said in his ruling on September 25, 2019.
The prosecution sought to block their release noting that the suspects possessed dangerous weapons including firearms and threatened to use violence on the staff during the robbery.
