In a significant breakthrough for law enforcement, two police firearms that were stolen from a GSU camp in Kopsiro, Bungoma County on August 23 have been successfully recovered. The swift and determined efforts of detectives from the elite Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau led to the arrest of the main suspect involved in this case.

The stolen firearms in question were G3 rifles, one of which was loaded with 20 rounds of 7.62mm caliber ammunition. Their mysterious disappearance from the Korngotuny GSU camp raised serious concerns, prompting a focused operation to retrieve them.

After conducting thorough investigations and meticulous analysis of the available evidence, detectives pinpointed Isaac Wanzala as the prime suspect behind the theft. Wanzala, a former GSU officer currently suspended from service on disciplinary grounds, hails from Mabonge Village in Nambale, Busia County.

It is believed that Wanzala covertly infiltrated the Korngotuny GSU camp during the night when the firearms went missing and managed to abscond with them without raising suspicion among the camp’s personnel.

In a daring move to apprehend the suspect, a raid was executed at Wanzala’s residence at dawn. However, upon realizing the presence of law enforcement officers, the suspect attempted to evade capture by seeking refuge in a nearby sugarcane plantation.

Undeterred, the determined officers launched an extensive search operation that spanned hours in the vast sugarcane field, ultimately flushing out the suspect. It appeared that Wanzala had not forgotten his concealment tactics from his time at the paramilitary unit, as he had used the dense cover of the sugarcane to elude capture.

However, when faced with the relentless pursuit of the detectives, he eventually surrendered. Upon his apprehension, Wanzala cooperated with the authorities and led them to the banks of the River Sio, which flows close to his father’s land. It was here that the stolen firearms were discovered, buried underground.

Currently, the suspect is in custody, awaiting arraignment in court to face the charges against him. This successful recovery operation serves as a testament to the dedication and expertise of the law enforcement agencies involved and underscores the commitment to maintaining the security and safety of the community.
