“After thorough analysis of forensic evidence, detectives pursuing suspects in the November 6 thievery of over Sh94.9 million while on transit by Wells Fargo staffers have today arrested four more suspected accomplices, all employees of the courier and security company,” DCI said in a statement.
The four who have been indentified as Joel Oyuchi Mweseli -planner, the in charge of drivers Harrison Mugendi Njeru, fleet supervisor Caleb Ouma Okinyi and the in charge of crew commanders Ronald Ouma Oluu are belived to to have conspired with the two prime suspects Daniel Mugetha and Anthony Nduiki who are still at large.

The main suspects dissapered with the money on November 6, after they sneaked the truck out of the company’s Nairobi offices shortly after the money-box was loaded, leaving behind the police escort car that was waiting to be flagged off.
The two dumped the company vehicle at Dafarm in South C, Nairobi and fled.
