Ten suspects have been arrested in connection with a consignment of fertiliser which was reportedly stolen from a warehouse in Changamwe, Mombasa county on Monday.

The suspects were arrested after 349 bags of the stolen fertiliser were traced to a storage facility in Kadzandani area, Nyali Sub County police commander Daniel Masaba said.

According to Masaba, the suspects broke into the Changamwe warehouse at around 3 am.

“We received a report about fertiliser stolen at a warehouse in Changamwe and we began acting on the report. Police in Changamwe working in conjunction with their counterparts in Kadzandani started tracing the fertiliser following the leads,” Masaba said.

In the process of combing the Kadzandani area, the police boss said the officers encountered a loaded lorry which was immediately flagged down.

“They ordered the occupants to open the truck and on inspection several bags of fertiliser were found,” said the sub county police commander.
