Nyandarua Cops Seek Robbers

POLICE in Nyandarua county are searching for two thugs who robbed a housewife of her car at gunpoint.

The duo stole the car in Wangige on Saturday and proceeded to Matindiri in Mirangine, where the vehicle rolled several times.

Police found the vehicle near the home of one of the suspects after a tip-off from members of the public.

The owner reported to Mirangine police station and positively identified it, area police boss Thomas Sangut said.

He said the main suspect, Mwangi Ngare, fled from Matindiri after realising police were trailing him.

Ngare is on the most-wanted suspects list, Sangut said.

“Flying Squad officers have been trailing the two suspects and are following crucial leads,” he said.

The police boss said it was the first case of a stolen vehicle in the area since 2013.
