Residents of Kyuluni village in Yatta/Kwa Vonza Ward, Kitui Rural, today stormed Kiusyani police station to protest increased cases of theft in the area.
They also accused the security officers of working in cahoots with criminals who have been terrorising them for years.
They said the police have been releasing suspected criminals under unclear circumstances and without taking them to court.
Area OCPD Patrick Makokha, however, dismissed the accusations as baseless allegations adding that the residents had not been very cooperative in providing information.
But the police boss promised to look into the matter and ensure that justice is served.
