Police have arrested three suspects for stealing 600 liters of diesel they illegally siphoned from reservoir drums belonging to Kenya Union of Savings & Credit Cooperatives (KUSCCO) Ltd.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the KUSCCO employees John Kioko, 41 and Michael Kioko were assigned to safeguard the fuel bought from Mbagathi Way Total Petrol Station, meant for the company's generators stationed at its Upper Hill offices.

The duo then worked in cahoots with Gabriel Ngeta, 48, to steal the Kes 107,460 consignment instead.

"Hawkshaws from the Operation Support Unit intercepted a Mitsubishi pickup at KAA Estate adjacent to Wilson Airport, where the driver and two KUSCCO employees were arrested and the fuel seized," said DCI.

They now await to be arraigned pending processing from Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) and Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) officers.
