Police in Nairobi are this morning guarding a property in Kahawa Sukari, Taveta road where seven vehicles believed to have been stolen were found.

Officers said they made the discovery when they tailed a car that was stolen from the city centre Thursday night to the property.

The recovered cars include a Honda, Toyota Prado KBT 826V, Subaru Forester KCA 525A, Toyota Noah KBS 110S, Alphard KBL 045K, Toyota Premio KBZ 372P and another Toyota Premio whose number plate was missing.

Three suspects, Mwangi Kimani Daniel, George Ndungu Gitu and Samson Maranga, were arrested as police began investigations into what they believe is a car theft syndicate.

The five who are being held at Kahawa Sukari police post include the owner of the house in which the cars were found, his wife and three others.

Kasarani OCPD Augustine Nthumbi says the stolen vehicles had been tampered with as their windscreens had been removed and chassis numbers altered.

Vehicle spare parts were also recovered in the compound.
