Further investigations uncovered that the items were reported stolen by a Kandara businessman on December 30, 2019.

Naivas-Thika manager Daniel Mukuha told reporters that the CCTV footage obtained from the incident was not helpful in revealing the identity of the girls.

According to the mangers, the girls deposited the package with their heads covered.

Police, however, say that they are pursuing valuable leads on the identities of the suspects.
