On Tuesday, sleuths from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) nabbed three people found in possession of illegal firearms in Nairobi.
The three have been identified as Chris Mwangangi, Lucia Wanjiku and Jeff Maina.
Mwangangi and Wanjiku were arrested while driving along the Arwings Khodek and Ring Road junction within Kilimani.
The detectives on routine patrol became suspicious after coming across a black land cruiser V8 motor vehicle with no front number plate, prompting them to flag it down immediately.
They recovered one Ceska Pistol with its Serial number erased, one Revolver Pistol and an unidentified frontal Plate Number.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the driver found with the Motor vehicle wasn’t the actual owner. The vehicle instead belonged to one Jeff Maina, a close friend of his.
The suspect informed his friend that he had been arrested and taken to Kilimani Police Station. Jeff Maina swiftly responded to the call by driving into the station in a Mercedes Benz. He was arrested, and a quick search was conducted inside the vehicle.
The officers found two Police Handcuffs, one Ceska magazine loaded with seven rounds of 9mm Ammunitions, one Police Pocket Phone and several Identification Cards from the car.
Recovered firearms were handed over to ballistics experts for examination while the suspects are being held in custody pending investigations.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
