Stolen Range Rovers disguised as household goods


Two weeks ago, three stolen Range Rover vehicles had been recovered at the port of Mombasa labelled as household goods.

The three cars had been reported to have been stolen from Interpol’s motor vehicles data base in the United Kingdom and were being transported to Uganda.

KRA Commissioner of Customs and Border Control Kevin Safari had affirmed that the three vehicles had been nabbed during a custom clearance process.
