Kira Road police station is holding Isaac Okello, a guard from Saracen security after being caught red-handed selling 31 bullets at Shillings 2000 each.
Okello, who has since been slapped with charges of unlawful possession of government stores, was allegedly selling the bullets to Fred Okumu, the operations manager of Jet Tech Security Company.
The suspect is said to have contacted Okumu Monday informing him that he had bullets and some bullet magazines he was selling at a giveaway price.
Since Okumu had never met Okello, he became suspicious rushed and alerted officers at Ntinda police station that he had received a call from a stranger who was selling bullets and magazines.
The Police officers encouraged Okumu to inform the stranger that he was ready to buy the ammunition and tasked him to find him at his office in Minister’s village in Ntinda township.
Okello arrived at Jet Tech Security Company in the evening with a bag containing the bullets and magazines.
Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson confirmed Okello’s arrest, saying that efforts to establish the exact source of the weapons were underway. END.
