Robbers Arrested For Stealing 1.7Billion After Digging A Tunnel For Six Months Into The Bank (See Photos)

Police have arrested three suspects, a woman and two men, in connection with the eye-popping theft of Ksh. 50m. (Ugshs 1.7b) from Kenya Commercial Bank, Thika branch.

Robbers are said to have dug a hole under the bank which is directly opposite Thika Police Station from a nearby building and accessed the strong room where they made away with the money.

It is said the owners of the shop rented three stalls early this year and have covertly been digging the hole for six months.

They were stocking soil from the tunnel in one of the stalls and parking cartons of books on top to conceal their activity.

Once they gained access to the strong room, police said the robbers broke into two safes and are believed to have used Oxy-Acytelene flame to drill holes into the safes.

The commandant, who ruled out involvement of police into the crime, said his officers were not far from getting to the bottom of the matter.
