The Police at the Central Police Station in Kampala are holding one suspect in connection with the recent armed robberies in the city and its suburbs.
Stanley Mulunda was arrested after police raided his rented house at Masanafu near the Kampala northern bypass.
His partner, Richard Kasirye, fled during a fire exchange that left one of the policemen injured in the leg.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango confirmed the incident.
A number plate (UAM 046J), 30 live ammunitions, two magazines, two SMG guns, court documents and a hammer were recovered from Mulunda’s house.
Onyango said a big reward awaits any member of the public with information leading to arrest of Kasirye.
Onyango said that the officer disabled during the operation is ‘out of danger’.
