Police laid an ambush and intercepted the vehicle, registration number KCW 901Y. 


The driver led the officers from Kendu Bay police station to the house in Nyaburi village in Karachuonyo where three others, among them a 62-year-old woman, were arrested.



"The driver, identified as George Ochieng, led officers to a house where three suspects were arrested," the statement reads in part.
