G4S staff arrested over Sh580K New Year robbery at Faulu Bank

Police have arrested four G4S staff after a total of Sh580, 000 was stolen from the Faulu Bank along Ngong Road Sunday morning.

Nairobi County commander Japheth Koome said the bank manager was also being questioned on why he did not keep the cash in a safe or any other secure place.

Investigations revealed that the alarm went off at around 2am and the backup team from the security firm went to the bank.

They later left without reporting anything.

Detectives who visited the scene found that the thieves had cut the window grills and took the cash that had been left in the counters.

The thieves were however unable to access the bank’s vault.

“We have arrested the guards and are also questioning the bank manager. It is not clear why he left such an amount of money in the counters,” said Mr Koome.

Police said that it was the day shift guards who realized that the bank had been broken into and reported to the police
