Their arrest follows allegations that they broke into the cash office on Sunday night, which they accessed after breaking into the Finance Manager's office through the backdoor.

Port Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Mutonya said the duo took away a Central Processing Unit (CPU) and two laptops.

“They then proceeded to the office but they did not get any cash. They took away the machines, but we have managed to arrest them,” he said as quoted by Nation.

Mutonya noted that the two were part of a four man gang, two members of whom were keeping an eye as the two, who are in police custody, broke in.

He said police have launched a manhunt for the remaining suspect.

“We have reviewed the CCTV footage and saw that they were four. We are looking for the other two,” he added.

Mutonya divulged that the suspects will be arraigned in court on Friday. 

Meanwhile, the G4S company has distanced itself from the allegations made against its employees.
