A Police Officer Suspected of the Manu Chandaria Jewelry Heist on Sunday Night Arrested

The DCI has arrested three men suspected to be part of an 8 man gang that raided Business mogul Manu Chandaria’s home in Muthaiga.

Among them is a Police Constable Jared Makambe who was arrested alongside two other private guards Judah Wafula and Stephen Omwega.

The police constable is reported to have been on guard at the businessman’s residence during the Sunday incident.

Kinoti said two armed thugs gained entry into Chandaria’s house and robbed him of an unknown amount of money and assorted jewelry at gunpoint.

The thugs then escaped while firing a G3 rifle alleged to have been stolen from the AP officer on guard.

“Officers responding to the scene conducted a thorough search leading to the recovery of the suspected stolen G3 rifle at a nearby bush,” he said.

The trio are in lawful custody as further investigations ensue.

Kinoti appealed for any information that may help with the investigations.

Kinoti says that those with information should call DCI Hotline Number – 0800 722 203.
