Thursday April 25, 2019-Flying Squad officers on Wednesday evening impounded a Toyota Probox car believed to have been used in the Sh11 million Barclays bank heist over Easter.
The driver, 28, was locked up on Wednesday evening after the first round of interrogation.
His identity has been kept a secret by investigators from the DCI economic crime unit who are probing the theft from three ATMs.
The vehicle with the number plate KCE **** is at the DCI headquarters, Kiambu Road.
According to a senior Flying Squad officer, who requested anonymity, the taxi driver told detectives that he was hired by four men on Saturday.
The driver said he picked two men from Kenyatta National Hospital gate and proceeded to The Mater Hospital, where another two men joined them.
He dropped the four at the central business district at 8:15pm.
The three ATMs were hacked and emptied of cash on Saturday night.
The cyber criminals used a method known as ATM jackpotting to drain millions out of the machines.
“We have a smoking gun and it is a matter of time before we apprehend all the suspects who were involved in the crime,” said the officer.
