Administrators in Thika town have burst a phone theft syndicate involving rogue police officers who have been terrorising residents over the past few years.
Thika West subcounty assistant county commissioner Lazarus Obuar said members of the public arrested the three suspects and recovered 110 mobile phones, most of which are smart phones.
Residents have been complaining to the police but they claim the authorities rarely follow up on the criminals.
The phone thieves ride on motorcycles and once they spot someone making a call, they snatch the phone and ride away, added the administrator.
Women and students from local learning institutions are the most targeted. Their mugging areas are along the town centre, matatu stages and along the county government offices near the Thika Police Station.
Some phones seized looked new, an indication that they had been stolen not long ago.
Thika Township MCA Andrew Kimani called for the transfer of the town’s police who have served for more than three years, saying most of them colluded with criminals.
Kimani has given a list of some rogue officers to the county police commander to have them moved and wondered why it was taking too long to effect changes.
