A wanted suspect believed to be part of a wider network of criminals targeting boda boda riders and stealing their motorbikes has been arrested.
According to Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the notorious suspect Samuel Oluoch alias Dozi, was arrested by detectives based in Suna East, Migori county and three motorbikes recovered in his possession.
"The 26-year-old suspect who posses as a mechanic was arrested following a call received through our #FichuakwaDCI hotline, from a concerned member of the public," DCI said.
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.
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.
