An accountant at the Kericho Law Courts was arrested over the alleged theft of two Land Cruisers.
Detectives from the Parklands Police Station in Nairobi arrested Allan Andayi on September 23 after the vehicles were traced to his house.
”Detectives established that the two vehicles were among 5 that were stolen from Nyali and their chassis number changed,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations said on Twitter.
The two vehicles with Registration No. KBU 933N and KBQ 260Z had been reported stolen five years ago.
Investigators from the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) revealed that the actual registration numbers for the two vehicles were KBW 122H and KBQ 805T.
It is suspected that the Land Cruisers were stolen from a car yard belonging to Nippon Korea Investment Ltd in Mombasa in 2014.
The vehicles were discovered at the suspect’s home in Syokimau last year.
They had been taken to Parklands Police Station as investigations continued.
The DCI said Mr Andayi would be arraigned later this week.
