A wanted suspect believed to be part of a wider network of criminals targeting boda boda riders has been arrested.
The notorious suspect Samuel Oluoch alias Dozi works closely with prisoners to steal motorbikes and sell was arrested by detectives based in Suna East, Migori county and three motorbikes were recovered in his possession.
The 26-year-old suspect who paused as a mechanic was arrested following a call received through our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, from a concerned member of the public.
“In a crime that appears to be gaining currency in the country, the syndicate mainly targets the popular Boxer make that sells like hot cakes in the black market,” the police said.
Detectives further established that Dozi’s network of criminals extends to a nearby prison, where he is in constant contact with a robbery suspect. He is currently in custody as detectives grill him for more information into the operations of the syndicate in order to dismantle it.
