Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Monday impounded eight cars and recovered several items believed to be behind fake gold racket in Kileleshwa.

The house usually under the watch of officers from the General Service Unit (GSU) belongs to businessman Jared Otieno.

DCI George Kinoti confirmed the raid, saying 15 suspects have been arrested so far.
