Police Arrest Man After Finding Him With Home-Made Pistol Capable of Firing & Grenade

A man is spending a night in police custody after he was caught with a homemade pistol capable of firing and a grenade.

It all started when a team of Police Officers from Dagoretti Sub-County who were acting on intelligence intercepted one suspect at Delta Petrol Station in Kawangare 46, who then led the officers to his house in Dagoreti.

While at the suspect's house, the officer managed to recover one tear gas grenade and a home-made pistol capable of firing

"Upon search of the house, police recovered several items including one homemade pistol capable of firing, one Nokia mobile phone suspected to have been stolen, and one tear gas grenade, one Samsung Tablet, and one machete among others," National Police Service said via Twitter.

It is believed the arrested man was a member of a team that had earlier Monday carried out a robbery mission within the region that was reported at Waithaka Police Station.

The suspect will be arraigned in court once police complete investigations. His male accomplice s still at large.
