The prosecution claims he was found trying to sell the stolen Ox plough valued at Sh10, 000 at Oyani market on April 16.
Court records indicate that Akinyi raised the alarm when she woke up only to find her property had been stolen.
Together with members of the public who responded to her distress call, they followed footsteps which led to Awuor’s house.
A broken padlock that was taken from the scene was later found in a nearby sugarcane plantation.
Awuor denied the burglary charges and was released on a bond of Sh30,000.
