Kenya Police have busted a bank robbery attempt at the Kenya Commercial Bank, Kerugoya Branch in Kirinyaga County.

Kirinyaga Police Commander David Kirui told Citizen Kenya that the armed gangsters were fouled after an alarm went on while they were removing blocks from a wall adjacent to the bank.

The officers on patrol responded to the alarm.

The daring robbers managed to escape but police are on the hunt for them. As a result, security has been beefed up in all major towns within Kirinyaga and all roads are being patrolled.

This comes barely a month after audacious bank robbers tunneled into the KCB Thika branch and managed to make off with Sh50 million.

The KCB Thika branch was right opposite the Thika Police Station.

Four suspects were arrested after an anonymous tip off and arraigned in court in connection with the robbery charges.

However, police were only able to recover Sh17 million.
