    The owner of the business premises, Bison Technologies who spoke to stated that the thieves made away with equipment worth and money Ksh1 million including laptops and proceeds from the sale of a car. 

    He had just sold his car the previous day to finance a project in Northern Kenya.

    The suspects entered the compound as visitors while the guards were changing shifts. The lady noticed the CCTV camera on the front door. 

    She tilted the camera away, after which they mastered the locks on the metallic door and used a crowbar to break into the wooden door as the slender man stood outside. 

    After accessing the premises they ransacked the office, looking out for new items and leaving the old ones. 

    The company, which deals with radio frequency communication equipment, had received new stock and also had some old equipment which needed repair. 

    The robbers put all the new equipment into their backpacks and walked out of the compound unnoticed. 

    The next day, on June 20,  the employees did not notice the office had been broken into since the thugs had mastered the locks and replaced them. 

    A report was then filed with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Monday, June 22, and tracing of the equipment has already commenced. 

    The company appealed to members of the public to help in identifying the culprits and bring the to book.
