Two more police officers have been arrested in connection with the robbery at Olenguruone, Nakuru County.

The two, APC Ezekiel Kipkoskei of Kuresoi North and PC Moses Ouma Nyamanga of Mau Summit Police Station, were arrested after one of their colleagues dropped his pistol magazine which had 15 bullets during the robbery.

This brings to four the number of officers who have been arrested after two others were arrested on Monday.

On Monday, Constable Arthur Murithi of DCI Molo and Administration Police Constable Felix Korir of Kamara Division were arrested after the magazine of a pistol assigned to one of them was found in a robbery scene.

The Jericho pistol magazine led to the arrest of two other officers bringing the number of policemen held to four and seven civilians.

They are linked to a robbery that occurred at a private home last week before the investigations were launched and led to the arrests.

According to police, the ammunition matched the gun assigned to one of the officers.

DCI made the announcement via Twitter, detailing that seven other civilians were also arrested.

The Flying Squad and Nakuru DCI officers are still pursuing more suspects in connection with the robbery.
