A joint operation conducted by detectives from the Economic and Commercial Crimes Unit and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) officials resulted in the seizure of a shipment of illicit cigarettes valued at over Sh32 million.

A statement from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) revealed that the team made the bust after undercover detectives had posed as potential customers and intercepted the consignment.

The seized goods comprised over 20,000 packets of popular cigarette brands Supermatch and Pall Mall Safari, at a residential house along Riara Road near Shra Engineering in Kahawa West.

During the operation, officials also found counterfeit stamps from the Kenya Revenue Authority and Uganda Revenue Authority, as well as empty cigarette cartons labeled British American Tobacco (BAT), Kenya, and Supermatch.

One suspect, identified as Veronicah Njeri Kariuki, was arrested and taken into custody at Muthaiga police station.

Following her detention, Kariuki is currently assisting detectives with investigations, after which she will be arraigned in court.
