The motorcycle, valued at Sh110,000, is believed to have been used during the robbery.

“We decided to institute the charge against him after the owner of the motorcycle, Mr Gatemi, presented an Occurrence Book (OB) number which showed that it was missing. We believe that it was used in the theft,” said Waweru.

Theuri was separately charged with theft and being in possession of a shotgun without a firearm licence.

He is accused of stealing Mr Mwangi’s gun, a magazine with seven rounds nine millimetre, two sellers and a bellot buckshot cartridge.
