Bomet security agencies have launched an investigation into a Saturday night incident where a motor vehicle, belonging to Silibwet Officer Commanding Station John Magondu, was stolen.

Magondu had parked the said Toyota Station Wagon registration number KAR 957 W vehicle at his usual parking spot adjacent to Brooklyn hospital when the incident occurred.

He said he had sensed no danger as other vehicles were usually parked at roadside outside rental residential plots that have no parking spaces.

Confirming the incident, Bomet Central Police Commandant Musa Omar Imamai said preliminary investigation indicates that the thieves made away with the vehicle at around 4:30 am Saturday.

Imamai said Bomet detectives questioned residents of the adjacent homes where some said they heard the vehicle driven away at the said time adding the witnesses did not get out to find out who was moving the car.

He said till now, detectives have found no leads that would enable them to recover the stolen automobile.

It will be recalled that a spate of such incidents had hit Bomet County and the neighbouring counties including Kericho and Nyamira in 2019 where a total of 23 vehicles, especially Toyota Probox, were stolen.

Suspects who were nabbed at the time said the vehicles were dismantled and sold as spare parts, indicating that there were slim chances of recovering a vehicle once it disappears.

One of the victims of the theft was former County Executive Member for Social Services, Gender and Youth Bernard Ngeno whose private residential home was broken into and his Toyota Land cruiser stolen.

Also targeted at the time were vehicles parked at Tenwek Mission hospital where the thieves took advantage of relatives visiting the loved ones admitted at the said facility.
