A notorious suspect known for stupefying unsuspecting revelers in Kiambu County and its environs, has been arrested by DCI detectives. Irene Njoki Irungu who plies her trade as ‘Michelle’ for fear of her true identity being unmasked, has finally fallen into our dragnet
This is after being on the run, for many days. The suspect who hobnobs in various clubs within Kiambu looking for her next victim has been described as notorious for spiking revelers’ drinks with a drug that tranquilizes them for upto to 12 hours, before robbing them off their money and other valuables.
She has perfected her art in what is commonly described as ‘wekaing Mchele’ to the point of acquiring dozens of SIM Cards, where she deposits money stolen from stupefied victims’ bank accounts, then once the money has been successfully transferred, she withdraws it without raising any suspicion.
Irene is suspected to be heading a syndicate of notorious criminals who prey on unsuspecting revelers, making merry in drinking joints within Ruaka and its environs in Kiambu county.
Detectives based at Kiambaa have previously received reports from tenants who have lost every household item they owned, including their clothes, bedding and utensils, after they entertained a reveler whose description fits that of the suspect.
Dozens of SIM cards, mobile phones and wrist watches suspected to have been stolen from her ‘Mchele’ victims were recovered from her custody. Also arrested was one Peter Irungu Wambugu, who is suspected to be an accomplice in the trade.
The suspects are currently cooling their heels at Karuri Police station, as they wait to be presented before court on Monday.
