They were presented before the Chief Magistrate in Meru where they were charged with robbery and illegal possession of government store. Police say that the suspects resisted arrest and were forced to open fire into the air to scare them.

According to the police, the young boy was found with a jungle jacket commonly used by the National Police Service. They said investigations are on to unravel the truth behind how the minor acquired the uniform. They however suspect that it might have been stolen.

This comes as the Police service is probing into allegations of illegal possession of fire arms and uniforms by the public and now even worrying, minors. DCI Boss George Kinoti says a collaboration of the public with detectives will aid in eradicating the vice which might otherwise increase crime cases in the country.
