Laikipia County police have discovered livestock that was allegedly taken by cattle rustlers from a farm in Loniek, Kirima Sub-County.

This came after a combined sting operation run by many local law enforcement organizations.

Before recovering the stolen animals, the multi-agency squad engaged the suspected bandits in a violent firefight at Chapelonin Area in Tiaty, according to the National Police Service (NPS).

“The livestock, nine cows and 18 goats, have since been returned to the owner in Loniek area,” said NPS in a statement.

The NPS likewise reiterated its stance on mitigating cattle rustling cases in bandit-prone areas of the country.

“Police remain committed to the fight against banditry and cattle rustling in the country and ensuring lasting peace in the affected areas,” said NPS.
