Police, on Thursday, June 6, 2024, arrested Francis Ndichu Kimani, alias Ndich in Kaimumbi, Kiambu County for vandalizing motor vehicles.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the 24-year-old was spotted scaling the wall of a homestead along Santiago Street at around 3 am.

“In a matter of seconds even before the commander could direct his men on the next course of action, the suspect re-emerged clutching the front grid and headlight of a Toyota Harrier, skillfully stripped from the homeowner’s family car. He was netted and marched to the station,” DCI said.

“After giving Kiamumbi residents sleepless nights by stealthily creeping perimeter fences and vandalizing their parked motor vehicles in the cover of darkness, the notorious suspect identified as Francis Ndichu Kimani, 24, was finally caught pants down.”

DCI added that the arrest was successful thanks to the troops from Kiamumbi led by the Officer Commanding Station (OCS).

“Strategically positioning themselves at various points, troops in Kiamumbi led by the OCS braved night-long dazzles, until 3.40 am when the lone burglar also known as Ndich was spotted scaling the wall of a homestead.”

According to the police, Kiamumbi has recorded several cases of motor vandalism adding that the residents have been forced to either leave their vehicles far distance, pay watchmen or sleep in the cars for safety.

“The arrest followed a sting operation conducted along Santiago Street, a spot so frequented by the enemies of progress that some motorists who dread vandalism of their cars either leave them a distance away at presumed safe areas, spend extra cash on watchmen, or sleep in the cars to keep watch themselves,” DCI reports reads.

Detectives said, upon interrogation, Kimani gave leads to the market for the stolen parts and his accomplices, adding that he will remain in custody as investigations get underway.

“Having been interrogated at length, crucial leads to accomplices and market for the stolen parts have been obtained. Further investigations are ongoing,” DCI said.
