Detectives on Thursday arrested three suspects in Fedha Estate, Nairobi, and recovered fake 10 million US dollars.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said they arrested the suspects following a tip-off.

“Some chemical believed to be used in processing the (fake) currency was also recovered in the suspects' house,” tweeted the DCI.

The suspects were also found in possession of a fake motor vehicle number plate and an IPad labelled GOK.

“The suspects have been placed in in custody awaiting arraignment on Court on Friday,” added the DCI.

In recent days, police have stepped up crackdown on suspects involved in fake money deals.
