Police in Kirinyaga County on Thursday arrested a man who posted a photo on Facebook while holding a G3 rifle two days ago.

Gichugu OCPD Anthony Mbogo said the man suspected to have been involved in violent robberies in the region was  nabbed at his home in Umbui village in Gichugu Constituency following a tip off from members of the public.

However, police officers did not find the said firearm in the man’s house.

The OCPD said the suspect held at Kianyaga Police Station is being questioned with a view of establishing how he acquired the gun normally used by the police.

Following the man’s arrest, police obtained court orders allowing them to hold him for 10 days pending completion of investigations.
