According to DCI boss George Kinoti, the three were arrested following an operation on Monday night in the BTL area in Ruiru.

The three, Paulin Francis Proper, Njikam Omar and Job Kentong were found with Sh350 Million in US dollars and Pounds, one Glock pistol and 28 rounds of 9mm caliber.

Suluths also discovered more than 250 kilograms of fake gold nuggets and gold bars.

Proper and Omar were found in the country illegally when Kentong had a refugee ID.

After further investigation, investigators discovered that Proper, the main suspect, owned a house in Muthaiga North where the weapon was found.

The weapon belonged to Loise Kaguongo, who was illegally holding it, as her firearm license had expired.

Kaguongo is said to be running more than 10 mobile money shops.

“… detectives believe he is a link between the suspects and the wider criminal gang that deceives unsuspecting people,” Kinoti said.

Last week, two men were arrested for possessing counterfeit coins worth at least Sh750 million.

The two, Samuel Maina and Boniface Mungai, were tracked down at Kilimani’s house where police discovered the counterfeit money.

The counterfeit currency was in US $ 100 bills totaling US $ 6,820,000, 100 Euros counterfeit 100 bills amounting to Euro 490,000 and counterfeit Kenyan shillings 1000 denominations valued at Sh6.4 million.
