Three suspects arrested after Kitale robbery, stolen gun recovered


Police are holding three suspects following last week’s robbery at the home of a Kitale businessman.
During the raid at one of the houses at Trans Nzoia where suspects were arrested, police also recovered a pistol and 176 ammunition which were stolen from the businessman.
County police boss Ayub Ali said the Barreta pistol and other items that had been stolen including electronics were recovered from a house in Lavington Estate, Trans Nzoia.
Mr Ali said his officers were tipped by the public on the whereabouts of the suspects.
“The loss of the gun was a security threat. It is laudable that my officers managed to recover it,” he said.
Police believed the robbery was planned and executed by those working for the trader.
“We are advising traders to vet those they recruit to avoid such incidences.”
