Crime Watch host Ian
Alleyne gave maximum per-
formance this week when he
kept his word and recovered
a stolen vehicle in under nine
hours after highlighting it on
The vehicle belonged to a
patient Aarti Mohammed, 28,
and her husband Adris.
Adris, guiding his wife Aarti
onto the set on Wednesday,
accompanied by their young
son, pleaded desperately with
Alleyne to help him find their
white C33 Medalist, PBE
6474, which was stolen at
about 10.30 am that same day
at Atlantic Plaza, Point Lisas.
Alleyne was subsequently
able to retrieve footage from
Atlantic Plaza officials, which
showed the vehicle the alleged
thief arrived in at the venue
before he stole the car.
Alleyne aired the footage
and was able to get immediate
information on the identity
of the driver.
He sent out a stern warning
to the thieves and instructed
them to drop off the vehicle
He also noted that in the
vehicle were medical and
other important documents
belonging to Mohammed
At about 4 am the following
day (Thursday), Alleyne
received information that the
vehicle was dropped off in St
Joseph near a roti shop. He
made his way there and con-
tacted Adris, who positively
identified the vehicle.
Mohammed and her hus-
band thanked Alleyne for his
intervention and help.
Mohammed said she believed
Alleyne would be the only
person to listen to their cries
and go all out to help.
Alleyne is also looking for
information on a green Nissan
B13 that was stolen along
Freeling Street, San Fernando,
on Monday. The vehicle was
parked in front of the OJT
Building some time between
9.45 am and 11 am. The
owner, who also appeared on
the show, asked for Alleyne s
assistance. Anyone with infor-
mation is asked to contact
Alleyne at 294-4081.

Adris and Aarti Mohammed chat with Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne on the set this week.
Alleyne also this week highlighted
the death of Stephanie Phillips, 27, who
was found hanging in the bedroom of
her Arima home on September 17,
Alleyne was told that two autopsies
were done on the body and their
results were conflicting. One stated
murder while the other concluded
death by hanging.
However, Alleyne viewed the body
and showed footage of what appeared
to be marks of violence about it,
including on one of the legs.
The Crime Watch host was told that
Phillips was four months pregnant and
the mother of a three-year-old girl.
Relatives told Alleyne they believed
Phillips was killed, as they divulged
information that suggested she was
going through a severe domestic
problem with a close male relative at
the time of her death. He was told on
the same day Phillips was found dead
she had gotten rid of all the man's
personal belongings after confiding
certain things to some of her relatives,
including her mother.
Alleyne visited Phillips' bedroom
where she was found and he
discovered certain things which led him
to believe there was more to the story
behind Phillips' death. He is now looking
for the close male relative to have a
cordial discussion with him.
Viewers also this week got a look at
the murder scene at the corner of
Gurahoo Trace and the Old Southern
Main Road, Chase Village, Chaguanas,
where Marcus Cudjoe, 32, of Enterprise,
was gunned down on Sunday.
On Thursday's show, Alleyne said he
received information that Cudjoe's
murder was linked to Friday night's
shooting at Bhagaloo Trace, Enterprise,
where two men were shot and
He also visited relatives of murder
victim Akini Ramadeen, who was shot
and killed at his Moraldo Trace, Upper
Santa Cruz, home at about 12.20 am on
Wednesday. Alleyne spoke with
relatives and also visited his bedroom
where Ramadeen was shot nine times.
After Alleyne left the area, shortly
after 5 pm that same day
(Wednesday), five shots rang out and a
stray bullet hit an elderly woman from
the area in her ankle.
The parents of four-month-old
Rohan Amar Khalawan, who was born
with a bilateral cleft lip and palette,
also appeared on Crime Watch asking
Alleyne for assistance in obtaining
corrective surgery for their baby.
Hours after the show, Alleyne was
able to secure an appointment for the
baby's parents Heeralal and Taheera
Baig, of Diego Martin, at the Eric
Williams Medical Sciences Complex,
Mount Hope, to see Dr Joseph Clarke,
who is a maxillofacial surgeon. Alleyne
said the surgery would most likely be
done at the hospital free of charge.
The stolen vehicle, recovered in record time.
