Police have arrested a suspected cattle rustler in Turkana Central, Northernwestern Kenya and recovered an AK 47 Assault Rifle with an empty magazine.
This followed a tip-off from members of the public that four men had been sighted within California Village in Turkana Central Sub-county armed with an AK 47 rifle.
The swift response by officers from nearby police conducted a raid at a rented house that led to the recovery of the firearm.
The house owner has since been arrested while police pursued three others who escaped.
Public members have been urged to partner with police in crime prevention by continuously sharing information.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
