According to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) X handle, a male suspect believed to be part of a gang that has since been placed in custody in connection with theft of another police firearm (AK47) got wind of the police presence in the area and escaped, leaving behind the rifle in the hands of his 30-year-old wife Priscilla Ntinyari.



Another suspect, Joseph Muriungi M’nabea, 40 was also arrested as a person of interest in the case, and interrogations are ongoing to determine his relations with the escapee identified as George Mutembei.

The recovery of the G3 rifle comes days after an AK47 stolen from Kabonge Police Station in Kirinyaga on February 2, 2024 was recovered with 18 rounds of ammunition, following an ongoing all-out war on armed gangs across the country.

Search for George Mutembei has been heightened as the arrested duo face the law.
