A burglar who has been filmed scaling walls in Kilimani apartments and stealing electronics, money and jewelry has finally been arrested.

Mr Michael Joseph Otieno Odhiambo, alias ‘Spider-Man’, was arrested at Greenhouse building along Ngong Road by detectives attached to the Kilimani police station.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations said in a statement that the suspect was arrested for the offence of burglary and stealing.

“The suspect was nabbed with several laptops, Pliers, a Cutter, a Hacksaw and a Ransack bag,” said the DCI statement.
