The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has urged law-abiding Kenyans to assist a man whose vehicle had broken down, forcing him to leave it by the roadside as he went in search of a mechanic.

According to the detectives, Stephen Kamau, was heading to Murang’a from Maragua town when his motor vehicle stalled in the middle of the road and was shocked to find it missing, minutes later.

It is alleged Kamau parked the car, a silver Toyota hiace by the roadside and decided to keep vigil inside the vehicle as he waited for early morning mechanics to open their doors for business.

Kamau would alight from the said vehicle as he walked towards Mukuyu where he hoped to find a mechanic.

However, along the way he discovered that he had left his phone charger inside the vehicle and decided to go back and get it.
