In less than six hours, Crime
Watch host Ian Alleyne made a
breakthrough in last Saturday s
murder of mother of one Ashanti
Debidin, 26, of Princes Town.
The suspect surrendered and con-
fessed to having allegedly committed
the crime in an interview with
Alleyne, who met with the suspect
at about 6 pm last Saturday (May
23, 2015) outside the San Fernando
Teaching Hospital. During an on-
camera interview, the man bowed
to Alleyne s pressing questions and
admitted to having murdered
Alleyne then asked the man to
accompany him to the nearby San
Fernando Police Station where he
(the suspect) was handed over to
Alleyne had earlier in the day
received information and went to a
house where he spoke to a woman
about the suspect.
A Guyanese national with citi-
zenship status in T&T, Debidin was
found by relatives in a sitting position
propped against a wall in her kitchen.
Both wrists were slit and there was
a gaping wound on her forehead.
Her mother-in-law Nazmoon Sie-
unarine was upstairs when the inci-
dent occurred. Police said no one
saw any intruder in the property
and nothing was stolen from the
In another case, Alleyne high-
lighted an incident via footage of an
armed robbery at a plant shop cap-
tured from a surveillance camera in
Alleyne described this as a wake
up call for Prime Minister Kamla
Persad-Bissessar, as it occurred a
mere three houses away from her
house at SS Erin Road, Phillipine,
Last Friday, Alleyne also showed
footage of his visit to Valencia last
Thursday night (May 21), hours after
brothers Nisan, 29, and Suresh, 19,
Fulchan were gunned down.
On May 7, the brothers older sib-
ling, Cyrus "Fish" Fulchan was also
killed along with his friend Francis
"Ricky" Charles at about 1.30 pm
outside of Fulchan s businessplace,
Top of the Hill Proprietor s Club,
Old Valencia Road, Valencia. Fulchan
had earlier in the day appeared before
a Sangre Grande magistrate.
Relatives of the Fulchan family
told Alleyne that their family mem-
bers had been continuously threat-
ened by people in the village. The
relatives said they were fearful for
their lives and added that Valencia
is under siege.
It was reported that the Fulchan
brothers had just pulled up in front
of their home at Old Valencia Road
at about 9.50 pm when gunmen
ambushed them and opened fire,
killing them instantly.
Alleyne made a plea to police offi-
cers to beef up patrols in the area
in a bid to restore law and order.
Also this week, Alleyne assisted
76-year-old Lyris Mc Intosh of Pey-
tonville, Arima, by donating colosto-
my bags to her. Mc Intosh said she
was grateful for his help.
Gunmen robbed the plant shop
and one customer of her handbag.
The thieves attempted to escape in
the customer s SUV but when it
failed to start they got out the vehicle
and calmly walked away. The sus-
pects walked on the road passing in
front of Persad-Bissessar s residence.
"This is a wake up call! What
would have happened if the prime
minister was leaving her residence
at the same time the men were walk-
ing past her house, still with the gun
in one of their hands?" Alleyne asked
On Wednesday, Alleyne also aired
a video which showed three men,
one an amputee, robbing a gaming
machine of its cash at Smiley s Bar
in San Fernando. That robbery
occurred on Mat 14, 2015.
One of the amputee s accomplices
was seen doing some dance moves
as he set up the robbery, which
encouraged Alleyne to edit the video
in such a way that it played Jayson s
calypso hit Mash it Up in the back-
ground, in time with the accom-
plice s dancing.

Also, Alleyne this week recovered
a maxi taxi which was originally a
plain panel van. The van had been
painted to look like a greenband
maxi taxi and was being worked by
a man from St Helena along the
Curepe to Chaguanas route.
However that was only part of the
problem. The $105,000 panel van
was owned by Kimraj Ramsubhag,
who exchanged it with another man
for a Sportero. But soon after the
transaction the Sportero was seized
from Ramsubhag by CarSearch.
Ramsubhag later discovered that
something was not right after he
searched for information on the
Sportero at Licensing Office. He also
did a search for his own vehicle and
found that it had been changed from
TCE 5631 to HCE 5631.
Ramsubhag came onto the
programme after seeing the vehicle
he believed to be his own waiting on
the Chaguanas maxi taxi stand in
Curepe. He said he called the police
when he saw the vehicle but they
did not respond and so he turned to
Alleyne for help. Less than 24 hours
later, Alleyne located the maxi in the
carpark of the Piarco International
Airport on Thursday.
CrimeWatch host Ian Alleyne presents 76-year-old Lyris Mc Intosh of
Peytonville, Arima, with a set of colostomy bags on the set of the show this
week. Mc Intosh said she was grateful for Alleyne's help.
