Six nabbed with home-made gun as police foil robbery attempt

KISII, Kenya, October 4, 2019 – Six robbery suspects were on Friday, October 4, 2019 arrested with two home-made guns,  one of which was recovered during the operation by police in Kisii County.

Sub-County Police Chief Hillary Tarus said they acted on a tip off from members of the public before they launched the successful operation that culminated in the arrests.

“We had gotten a credible tip-off that some young suspicious youth were loitering at Nyakeyo shopping centre with intent and we acted quickly leading to the arrests,” said Tarus.

“There was a brief exchange of fire between the police and the suspects. However, there were no injuries,” Tarus said. He further divulged they are trailing the other gun which was not traced during the arrests.
