Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday, September 16, arrested two more suspects in connection with the Ksh72 million bank heist.
Part of the Sh72 million that was stolen from a Standard Chartered Bank ATM in Nairobi West last week has been recovered inside the house of a 60-years-old grandmother in Machakos county.
The money, amounting to Sh2,389,000 in cash, was recovered by detectives attached to the Special Crime Prevention Unit (SCPU) on Sunday after a brother of one suspect led them to where the loot was hidden.
John Kamau Mulei was arrested on the night of Sunday, September 15, at Muumaandu in Machakos County by detectives from the Special Crime Prevention Unit (SCPU), before leading the detectives to the house of his 60-year-old grandmother Mary Kyalo at Kalumoni.
The grandmother was also arrested by the DCI. More reports by DCI stated that Mulei was the brother to another suspect, Bernard Mwendwa, a G4S officer who was arrested on Thursday, September 12, for also being part of the gang that orchestrated the heist.
Ms. Kyalo, will on Monday morning be grilled by the detectives as police try to establish whether she played any role in the bank heist.
