11 suspects arrested over theft of laptops in Juja
Eleven suspects are being held in Juja in connection with the theft of laptops and cameras from JKuat students. Juja police boss Patricia Nasio told the Star in her office yesterday that they are also looking for a broker who is suspected of colluding with students and bankrolling the thugs to rob students. She said the broker has gone into hiding. Nasio said there has been an increase in violent robberies and students are often injured. Last month, one was shot. “We held a community policing meeting last week between the security officers and caretakers of the hostels and agreed to work together,” Nasio said. Students had earlier threatened to hold protests. They said the route from the highway to the hostels is not lit and the university administration has not repaired the street lights since they stopped working last year.
