Over 700 laptops and three government vehicles attached to Ruto’s convoy were recovered in the operation.
The seized cars were also branded.
Police report indicated those arrested are suspected to be using the DP William Ruto's office to defraud unsuspecting Kenyans.
Security officers revealed they had found a document indicating that the suspects had signed a deal of lending goods worth Sh317 million.
The suspects used fake Local Purchase orders (LPOs) to con members of the public claiming that it was the DPs office that was procuring the goods.
