Missing car sold in Tobago
Even with an extremely packed week CrimeWatch host Ian Alleyne still managed to bring justice to distressed citizens of T&T. Last week on the programme, Dilmatie Mack visited Alleyne for help after she paid money to Jefferson Walker, who promised to assist her with getting a house from the Housing Development Corporation (HDC). After that show aired Mack re-appeared on Tuesday to report that Walker had returned the $18,000 owed to her. Mack thanked Alleyne for getting involved and helping her recover the sum.
In another case, Nellie Jaimungal, of Gasparillo, rented her car to Shahid Mohammed on April 11, 2014. The car was never returned to Jaimungal. After Alleyne investigated he discovered that the car was taken to Tobago and sold. Alleyne made his way to Tobago and located the vehicle, which is now stored at the ANR Robinson International Airport to be picked up by Jaimungal.
In another controversial story, Adana Harry came to Alleyne claiming that her ex-niece-in-law, Andrea Paponette, is owing her money. Paponette saw her photo on air and came in the following day to clear her name. Both parties were brought to the studio to settle the matter. After a few minutes of mud-slinging by both parties, however, tempers raised and things got heated. Alleyne had to go to a quick break and then spoke with both parties about reaching an amicable settlement.
Alleyne also investigated the double murder of Jankie Bachu and Savitri Sultan at Thomson Road, Palmiste, in the early hours of Saturday morning. The couple were allegedly stabbed to death by Sultan’s ex-lover. He showed the video of his visit to the family to look into the matter. Alleyne is now looking for Ralph Ramdan, who can assist him with his investigation.
Alleyne got a brand new phone (S3 Galaxy) for a woman whose phone was stolen in the bathroom of the Gulf City Mall, La Romaine, recently. Pictures were taken with the stolen phone by the suspect, who was unaware those pictures were being uploaded into the Dropbox application which had been installed by the phone’s owner. The application forwards photos taken by the phone to the e-mail address of telephone’s owner.
The victim’s family forwarded the photos to Alleyne, who investigated the matter. Alleyne aired the suspect’s photos and within minutes he was able to contact the suspect, who agreed to purchase a new phone as the original one was said to have been used for parts.
Alleyne is looking for the driver of a Sliver Tida, PDB 9321, who was involved in a hit-and-run incident involving a security officer.
