Detectives based at DCI-Kilimani, have discovered fake currencies totaling to millions of shillings, at a house in Makaazi apartments, in the upmarket Kilimani neighborhood.
A total of 6.8Million fake US dollars, 490,000 fake Euros, and 6.4 Million Kenya Shillings was recovered stashed in metal boxes, in the early morning raid that saw two suspects namely Samuel Maina and Boniface Mungai arrested.
Also recovered were jerrycans with an unknown liquid, DeLaRue branded badges and a seal, all suspected to be used in printing of the fake currencies.
Assorted documents, customs reflector jackets, United Nations and National Treasury stickers were also confiscated.
The suspects were placed in custody as crime scene detectives combed the apartment for more clues, in what appeared to be a well coordinated, fake currency syndicate.
The recovery of the fake currency, followed a report filed by a concerned member of the public.
Since the introduction of the toll free DCI line, the police officers say crime has been easily reported and solved before more damage was caused.
The officers were thankful for the tip off, and promised Kenyans of swift action to nab dealers in fake currency and money laundering schemes.
