Police in Nyeri are detaining three women on suspicion of drugging and robbing unsuspecting revelers in bars and nightclubs.
The three suspects - Rita Achieng Okuto, Caroline Kariuki, and Caroline Wanjiku had initially been arrested for being outside past curfew hours but after a search, they were found in possession of stolen items.
The items included a laptop, six mobile phones, one electronic tablet, and a collection of ATM and identity cards belonging to different persons.
Also recovered were tablets thought to be sleeping pills used to spike their victims’ drinks before robbing them.
Two men who went to Nyeri Police Station to report that they had been robbed positively identified their phones from among those recovered from the suspects. They also admitted that they were in the company of the three women in a bar.
The suspects are being held at Nyeri Police Station pending arraignment in court on Tuesday to face various charges.
