Three members believed to be part of a criminal syndicate that has been stealing cars from car-hire companies in the coastal region have been arrested.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said in a statement on Sunday that the three were arrested in Kilifi and Kajiado by Mombasa-based sleuths.
The intelligence-led operation led to the arrest of 42-year-old John Kimani and Pacificah Kemunto Nyakundi aged 39.
They are believed to be accomplices of the 50-year-old George Morara.
The criminals are said to have been posing as genuine customers before stealing cars from car hire companies.
A Toyota Axio that was stolen two months ago was recovered in Tanzania through the Namanga border during the operation.
