The sleuths also recovered a motor vehicle from the duo.
The arrest followed the recovery of 13 empty cash boxes that were stolen from the G4S team in Thogoto Forest, Kiambu.
Both of the Toyota Noah vehicles used in the heist had been to a body shop and had received a fresh coat of paint to make it impossible for police officers to trace them.
DCI Director George Kinoti had vowed to track down and arrest the perpetrators of the Thursday daytime robbery promising that they will all face justice.
