The arrest took place at Makaazi apartments.

A total of 6.8Million fake US dollars, 490,000 fake Euros, and 6.4 Million Kenya Shillings were recovered stashed in metal boxes, in the early morning raid that saw two suspects namely Samuel Maina and Boniface Mungai arrested.

Also recovered were jerrycans with an unknown liquid, DeLaRue branded badges, and a seal, all suspected to be used in the printing of the fake currencies.

Assorted documents, customs reflector jackets, United Nations and National Treasury stickers were also confiscated.

The suspects were placed in custody as crime scene detectives combed the apartment for more clues, in what appeared to be a well-coordinated, fake currency syndicate.
