As the woman and the attendant conversed, the Asian is seen handing an old Sh50 note to another lady at the counter.

Police believe that the note was used to put the woman in a trance.

It was at that point that the suspects asked to withdraw Sh97,000 via M-Pesa. Unfortunately, only Sh60,000 was available.

They were later joined by a third woman also believed to be a part of the syndicate stupefying people in joints before stealing from them. The woman approached the other seller.

It took the attendants a few minutes to realize they had been swindled.

Police are pursuing other suspects who could have been involved in the said crime.
