Police have arrested two suspects in connection to the disappearance of Sh8 million, stolen from a Kiambu-based businessman.

In the incident reported late last month by the businessman’s wife, the money was stolen from a safe hidden at the abandoned pump station located at Kinangop in Nyandarua County.

The DCI said it believes the suspects gained entry into the building through the roof before helping themselves with the cash after breaking the safe.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations DCI Kenya, a total of Sh2.5 million has since been recovered from the suspects identified as Moses Cherish and Eliud Wangai. The third suspect David Mushendu is still at large.

The DCI said the suspects are facing charges of Stealing by Servant contrary to Section 281 of the Penal Code.
