Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have arrested three suspects in a crackdown on a fraudulent online car dealers syndicate.

Lawyer Moses Owino Angelo and another suspect, identified as George Tsuma, were arrested in Mombasa while the third suspect, Charles Kipsang Koech alias Charles Brian Koech alias Ibrahim Merrali, was arrested in Naivasha.

“A lawyer and two other suspects were last night arrested when DCI detectives broke a multi-million fraudulent online car dealers syndicate that purports to operate in Mombasa. The lawyer, Moses Owino Angelo, and George Tsuma were arrested in Mombasa,” the DCI said on Twitter.

Their arrest came after two people filed a complaint at DCI Kasarani claiming to have been swindled.

The victims claimed that they had made payments for vehicles they had seen posted on online market place jiji.co.ke

“One buyer reported he was led to a car yard on Nairobi’s Ngong road to view a Toyota Probox. After making the full payment, he was abducted and dumped in the city centre,” said the DCI.

“Another buyer paid a deposit through Mpesa for a Land Rover. The vehicle was never delivered.”

According to the DCI, investigations have established that Charles Kipsang is the kingpin of the racket.

The DCI further appealed to members of the public who may have fallen victim of the syndicate to report to DCI Kasarani for further police action.
