A drunk driver is reported to have tricked police officers before escaping with their guns.
According to reports, the incident was filed at Kileleshwa Police Station in Nairobi. The police officers who were on patrol at 11.15 pm on Friday found the driver drunk while in his car and made up their minds to arrest him.
The drunk driver was handcuffed by the police officers who then started driving his car towards the police station.
The car switched itself off while it was being driven to the police station. The drunk driver saw this as an opportunity and asked the cops to free the handcuffs so that he could repair the car.
The officers alighted from the car and left their rifles inside. The drunk driver took this opportunity and sped off with the guns.
The cops tried chasing the driver but he was too fast. To make matters worse, the police officers did not know the registration number of the said vehicle.
Police officers are still searching for the vehicle with hopes of arresting the suspect and recovering their rifles.
