Flying Squad officers have unearthed a home in Ngong where stolen cars are dismantled and sold in parts or some parts changed and sold as whole to unsuspecting buyers.
The arrested four men; Zacharia Maina, Stephen Ndungu, Francis Karuthi and James Kamau, who are suspected to be behind the car theft syndicate and subsequent dismantling and selling as spare parts to innocent car owners.
Detectives discovered a Toyota Landcruiser stolen in Nairobi last month. It had been changed from white to black and its original number plate KBX 449A changed to KCL390P. The four were in process of selling it for Sh6.5 million to unsuspecting buyer.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations said the four are part of organised crime in which vehicles are stolen, dismantled and spare parts sold. Some vehicles like the stolen Landcruiser are replaced with other spare parts and sold.
This syndicate was prevalent in Kariobangi and Juja areas but after severe crackdown it has shifted to other outskirts of Nairobi.
