Police officers have sounded a warning to private garage owners over cases of car theft.
This comes after an abandoned and suspected-stolen motor vehicle was yesterday recovered at Gatonye area near the Delmonte shop in Murang’a County.
A night-shift driver alerted the police after sighting the neglected vehicle that had no occupants at about 0200hrs.
At a visit to the scene, Police officers recovered an abandoned Toyota fielder car Reg No KBU xxx Grey in color with a tampered ignition kit.
The vandalized vehicle was towed to Ngati Police Station after the scene was processed by the DCI Crime Scene personnel.
NPS has since established the vehicle particulars in efforts to identify the real owner and occupants at the time, their motive, and safety.
Police noted a sharp decline in stolen vehicles and urged members of the public to be on alert of their surroundings in order to report suspected criminals dealing with stolen spare parts.
“We understand that cases of motor vehicle theft have significantly reduced due to proper human and technology surveillance by the NPS jointly with motor-vehicle owners and private tracking companies.
“We wish to encourage members of the public to share information on garages and private compounds that are illegally used to harvest motor parts from stolen vehicles as we jointly work to end this vice.”
