Daring gang stole OCS's car parked close to governor’s, county commissioner's offices
- The car, a Toyota registration KAR 955W, belonging to Officer Commanding Silibwet Police Station in Bomet was stolen on Saturday, November 19 morning.
- It is interesting that the criminals targeted a senior police officer and stole his vehicle at a parking yard close to the governor’s offices, county commissioner’s office, police headquarters and an Administration Police camp,” a resident says.
Silibwet Police Station Officer Commanding Station (OCS) is still recovering from the shock of losing his car to thieves over the weekend.
John Magondu parked his car - a white Toyota DX 102 station wagon with registration number KAR 957W - overnight as he normally does only for him to wake up to no car. He reported the theft to the authorities and investigations are underway.
This incident has raised concerns among residents about a return of a car theft gang after three years.
"It is very interesting that the criminals targeted a senior police officer and stole his vehicle at a parking yard close to the county governor's office, county commissioner's office, police headquarters and Administration police camp," observed Kipkemoi Barsumei, former Bomet Mayor.
The notorious gang areas of operation were Bomet, Kakamega, Kericho, Trans Nzoia, Kisii, Nakuru and Kisii.
