A 23-year-old robbery suspect was arrested in Nairobi over the weekend and found in possession of a homemade firearm.

His apprehension materialized after police officers got wind of a man acting suspiciously.

"It was while on their usual patrol within Kayole's Maana area that the Njiiru-based officers received information regarding a house frequented by suspicious characters," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

The detectives immediately swung into action in the dramatic Saturday incident and raided the house, busting the suspect off guard.

John Kimani Muchina, 23, was apprehended, and a quick but detailed search was conducted in the premises. One homemade pistol capable of firing loaded with a live bullet was recovered during the operation.

Also recovered was a motorcycle make boxer, six pocket phones, vehicle and motorcycle ignition keys, an insurance certificate sticker, mobile phone accessories, five empty wallets, a gas mask, and three waist porches.

The suspect is currently being held at a police facility awaiting further legal action. Meanwhile, the recovered items have been placed in safe custody and will be produced as exhibits.
