A woman who went viral on Facebook for stealing camera equipment while posing as a customer has been identified.
The suspect stole two cameras, a Nikkon 750 and Lumix from popular Kikuyu gospel artist Karangu Muraya at his studio along Kamakis Bypass.
Using open-source intelligence-gathering skills, a concerned Kenyan unmasked the suspect, whose real name is Mary Wangechi.
A Google Image reverse search led to her online footprints which showed that Wangechi’s pseudo name is Nancy Chebet.
This is not the first time Wangechi has been involved in such criminal activities.
A deeper search on the internet revealed that the suspect was among three women who allegedly made away with Sh750,000 from a businessman in a theft that occurred in May 2020.
The trio trailed Stephen Keru Kahiu from a bank on Thika Superhighway until he parked outside Powerstar Supermarket on Mwiki Road.
They had rented a car from a dealer and driven behind him.
CCTV cameras caught them breaking into the businessman’s car and stealing the money before fleeing towards Mwiki.
Kahiu, who was shown the vehicles seen adjacent to his car by the guards, gave chase but was unable to catch them.
He later reported the incident to the Kasarani Police Station.
It is our hope that with the information provided, relevant authorities will take swift action and bring the perpetrator of this crime to justice.
