Security personnel from Homa Bay County have stepped up their efforts to find four firearms and 110 rounds of ammunition that were allegedly taken from the Kipasi Police Post in the Lambwe ward of the Mbita sub-county by unidentified individuals.
An AK-47 and three G3 rifles were among the firearms taken in the Wednesday night event, which was classified as a break-in.
The police report claims that an undetermined number of thugs broke in via the window of the armory and stole the mentioned firearms.
How the robbers entered the armory and where the police officers stationed at the post were during the nighttime attack are still mysteries.
Samson Kinne, the commander of the Homa Bay County Police, stated that they have stepped up their efforts to seize the weapons and quickly apprehend the culprits, noting that the event has raised anxiety in the neighborhood.
Since the firearms are in the wrong hands and a threat to their livelihoods, the police chief has urged the public to work with the security personnel in locating them.
To make sure the guns are recovered, detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), ordinary police, and national government administration officials are on the scene.
