According to reports, only the number plates and few parts, including wirings, foot mats and tyre covers, were recovered by police after raiding the criminal ‘chop shop’ in Kikuyu, Kiambu County. During the raid, a Toyota and BMW ‘chop shop’ were also discovered by the detectives.

In a similar incident, detectives arrested four suspects last month in Nairobi while trying to sell a stolen Toyota Land Cruiser to unsuspecting buyer for Sh6.5 million (N24.5 million).





The recovered Land Cruiser SUV had been repackaged, with the color changed from white to black and its original number plate KBX 449A changed to KCL390P.

Unlike in Lagos, Nigeria, were Toyota Camry seems to be the most burgled car due to its parts, Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the most stolen vehicles in Kenya. In England , the Range Rover SUV is one of the most stolen vehicle by car theft syndicates.
