DCI detectives are pursuing suspects who escaped through an underground tunnel after siphoning fuel from a drilled petroleum pipeline at Kathangaita area in Machakos.
Detectives say the drilled underground pipeline was concealed in a 50 by 50 plot, completely fenced with iron sheets.
Upon search, a Mitsubishi canter with a ‘’Clean Water Tank” which was being loaded with fuel was confiscated.
This is not the first time people are arrested for siphoning fuel. Last year, police unearthed a multi-million shilling illegal fuel siphoning syndicate at Sobea and Salgaa in Nakuru.
