A 42 year old man has today been charged with illegal possession of two jackets and one spent cartridge caliber 7.62 mm property believed to be from the disciplined service.
Patrick Otsieno was arrested in Kibera’s Lindi area after members of the public called the police to inform them that there was a group of people that had been spotted with police uniform in the area.
The OCS then deployed officers to the said area, on reaching the suspect’s house they found Patrick Otsieno.
The officers on conducting the search on the suspect’s house found two jungle jackets on top of the bed and one spent ammunition calibre 7.62 mm under the mattress.
The suspect however denied the charges before Senior Magistrate Philip stating that he works with local private security firm, giving account that on the day he was arrested he found the police officers had broken into his house to conduct a random search.
“….I work for private security company, I found the police had broken into my house, I have no connection with the said items given that I am just a citizen” Otsieno Pleaded
The suspect will be held at the Industrial Area medium prison as the case is set to be mentioned on 17th February 2022.
