Woman finds G3 rifle, 15 bullets buried in her shamba

Police on Friday recovered a G3 rifle and 15 rounds of ammunition hidden in a shamba near Ndarugu academy in Witeithie Estate Juja Sub-County.
Consolata Onyango stumbled on the weapon as she was tilling her shamba.
According to Juja OCPD Simon Thirikwa, Ms. Onyango hit a "hard object" with her jembe and upon checking, she found a sack in which she found the gun and a crowbar.
She informed local chief Muiruri Muchui who in turn informed Witeithie administration police. 
The officers lead by inspector James Dawai and Corporal James Kinyua rushed at the scene and recovered the weapon.
Thirikwa commended members of the public for giving the vital information which lead to the recovery of the rifle registration number G3-A36539936 with the 15 rounds of ammunition. He said one of the bullets was already lodged in the chamber for firing.
The OCPD added that investigations were underway to establish whether the gun has been in use in any of the robberies that have dogged the area and its environs in the recent times. 
The gun was taken away for ballistic examination. 
Among the senior officers who were at the scene was Juja DCIO Abedie Kiio.
