Police in Ruiru are holding a 14 seater matatu driver and his tout found with 40 mobile phones in their vehicle.
The two were arraigned at Thika on Wednesday but OCPD James Ngetich said they only sought more time to hold them to complete investigations.
Ngetich said they had received multiple complaints from passengers who lost phones in the matatu and some of the passengers had recorded the vehicles’ registration particulars.
The Matatu operates along the Nairobi -Thika route and was intercepted near Zetech University.
The OCPD said complainants are coming out to identify their phones and record statements which will determine the charges to be pressed on the suspects.
“Everyone will give their version on how they lost their items,” Ngetich said on Thursday.
On the night of April 27, robbers hijacked a Neo Kenya bus, robbed passengers including a policeman Martin Korir whose pistol was used to kill him.
