Thika West detectives are holding a suspected transformer vandal in whose home was found a cache of suspected stolen properties of the Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC), believed to have been vandalized within Makongeni area of Kiambu County.

140L of transformer oil, pole climbers, 9 sets of customer interface unit, a winch, a KPLC apron, assorted transformer bolts and nuts, a roll of copper cable, a handheld drill, ropes, a sack of transformer laminators and a Tuktuk Reg no. KTWA 486Z formed part of the recoveries.

Denis Karanja, 27, (suspect) is believed to be part of a wider gang of vandals who lurk in poorly lit streets, before vandalizing transformers for the coveted oil and cables, consequently leaving the local wananchi in darkness for weeks.

In November 29, detectives seized over 1,020kg of copper cables at a godown in Nairobi’s Enterprise Rd and arrested one suspect, following increased cases of transformer vandalism, a risky illicit affair that has left scores electrocuted.

Search for other known accomplices in the area is ongoing.
