A deeper search on the internet revealed that the suspect was among three women who allegedly made away with Sh750,000 from a businessman in a theft that occurred in May 2020.
The trio trailed Stephen Keru Kahiu from a bank on Thika Superhighway until he parked outside Powerstar Supermarket on Mwiki Road.
They had rented a car from a dealer and driven behind him.
CCTV cameras caught them breaking into the businessman’s car and stealing the money before fleeing towards Mwiki.
Kahiu, who was shown the vehicles seen adjacent to his car by the guards, gave chase but was unable to catch them.
He later reported the incident to the Kasarani Police Station.
