What are the odds a
stranger calling to say he
has found your wallet
minutes before you are
away from the cashier at
This is exactly what
happened when ANSA
McAL Group s Sector
Head of Media, Retail and
Services David G Inglefield
lost his wallet on Sunday
had it returned by Petit
Valley Good Samaritan
Inglefield said moments
before his wallet fell on
the road, he was putting
his granddaughter in her
car seat and absent-
mindedly left it on the
hood of his car.
In relating the incident
yesterday Paul, an auto
body technician and a
peddler of "life-time war-
ranty cooking pots", said
he was in his car with his
wife and children around
1 pm when he spotted
"something strange" on
Gray Street, St Clair.
"I immediately stopped
and when I picked it up
I realised it was someone s
wallet just lying in the
middle of the road," Paul
His immediate instinct
was to return it.
There was US$300,
about US$4 and TT$4
along with several pieces
of important documents
in the wallet, Paul said.
He also spotted a hand-
written note leading him
to contact a Mr James.
"I thought this person
must know Mr Inglefield
and it turned out that he
did. I gave him my num-
ber for Mr Inglefield to
contact me," Paul said.
Paul said he was on his
way to collect cocoa from
a friend in Maraval when
Inglefield called and told
him he was in Hi-Lo,
coincidently in Maraval.
"I told him well come
outside and get your wal-
let. He was very happy
and surprised and he
shook my hand. He
Good guy rewarded
offered to give me some
sort of commendation but
I told him there was no
need for that. I was just
happy to return the wal-
let," Paul said.
The next day Paul got
He got a call from
Inglefield s secretary
telling him to come to his
"I didn t have time to
change my clothes. When
thanking me for my good
deed and a cheque with
the equivalent amount of
money found in the wal-
"I was really surprised.
I didn t expect this," Paul
It turned out that yes-
terday was Paul s fourth
wedding anniversary and
he has already cashed the
cheque to celebrate.
Paul, a Jehovah s Wit-
nesses, seems to have a
knack for finding lost
items. He said that was
the third wallet he has
found and returned. He
has also found cellphones.
The incidents, Paul
described, were enrich-
"I lost my wallet once
and I know the hassle you
have to go through to get
back the documents. It s
really a great feeling when
you could do that simple
deed of returning some-
one s possession," Paul
To Inglefield the return
of the wallet is a reflection
of a wider picture that
good men still exist in a
society where crime is
"I am the enteral opti-
mist. There is still a lot of
good people. Sometimes
that feeling of fear sup-
presses a person s ability
to step out and do good
things but we sill have
people willing to do just
that," Inglefield added.

The Pat Chu Foon sculpture Tribute
to the Steelband Movement has been
repaired, just days after the T&T
Guardian reported its collapse.
Last week, the monument in a dilap-
idated state, with the middle figure of
the trio doubled over on the ground,
having crumbled and fallen back on
City mayor Raymond Tim Kee had
told the T&T Guardian, "We will fix
it."But on the phone yesterday, Tim
Kee pleaded ignorance as to who had
carried out the repairs.
"I don t get involved in these things,"
he said, "I just make sure they get done.
My chief engineer takes it from there."
Earlier in the day, after the City Hall
meeting of the Port-of-Spain corpo-
ration, the mayor had told the media
he had asked Anthony Salloum, a busi-
nessman with experience of working
in heritage conservation in England,
to look into fixing the statue.
Contacted yesterday, Salloum said,
"I visited the statue a couple of days
ago and saw it surrounded by scaf-
folding and protected by plastic and it
had been repaired.
"The mayor himself was surprised.
I have no idea who did the repairs. But
vagrants living at Riverside Plaza told
me they saw a couple of Indian guys
who came to fix it."
Yesterday the scaffolding and plastic
were gone and the statue looked as
good as new.
Pat Chu Foon s daughter, Elizabeth
Chiu Foon, said she was happy to hear
her father s sculpture had been repaired.
She first heard about its collapse when
she read about it in Monday s report.
"I don t pass that area," she said, "I
saw it in the papers."
It is apparently not the first time
the sculpture has been damaged. A
statue of Gandhi by Chu Foon that
stood in Kew Place was also destroyed
in the 1980s and was not repaired, but
replaced with a new one by another
Chiu Foon said the panmen statue,
put up in honour of Winston "Spree"
Simon, "used to be by Wrightson Road,
by the waterfront, and people used to
climb on it and it had to be repaired
and was moved to near Riverside Plaza
in the 1990s. It was more appropriate
for it to be there, but of course where
it is there are lots of vagrants and they re
not respectful of art."
Whoever fixed the sculpture must
have worked quickly and skilfully, per-
haps under cover of darkness.
Chiu Foon s daughter questioned
whether it had been repaired in the
same style as her father s original work.
