Tharaka-Nithi Police Boss Johnston Ipara lamented that members of public have developed the trend of taking the law into their own hands.
He said this has denied the suspects justice or a chance by police to use them in investigation.
The police boss warned that legal action would be taken on anyone linked to burning suspects.
Mr Ipara advised the youth to engage in income generating activities and refrain from stealing.
