He was charged with stealing a
cell phone from a Buyers Mart in
Chaguanas, but if one is to believe
his common law wife Gail
Andrews, this story did not end
Andrews appeared on this week s
Crimewatch show telling host Ian
Alleyne that she believes that the
man charged with that theft, with
whom she once lived in a common
law relationship, may be behind
the theft of her silver Primera
Wagon PBN 2388.
Recounting the sequence of
events, Andrews told Ian that the
man called her recently and told
her he wanted to see their child.
She said they met at the Trincity
Mall, where her car was stolen.
She believes that the man may
have played a role in the robbery,
telling Ian she believed that he plot-
ted to get her to the mall and then
got "some of his friends to steal
the car while they were together."
But even though she had her sus-
picions, Andrews admitted she
never confronted the man.
She, however, filed a report with
the police on the theft of her vehicle
from the mall car park. She said
she believes investigating officers
may have access to footage from
the mall car park which could help
solve the case.
But there is another side to this
story---Gail wanted to resume the
relationship with her former com-
mon law husband.
She told Ian, "I tried to make
back several times with him. But
things did not work out."
However, she said it was during
visits to his home that her suspi-
cions that he may have been
involved in the theft of her car

Andrews said it was not the first
time that he had threatened her.
She even had threatening texts
from the man.
Ian asked Andrews to make con-
tact with Sergeant Swamber of the
Stolen Vehicles Unit and yesterday
she confirmed that he was assisting
her in finding the vehicle.
Ian assured her that if in fact her
common law husband was involved
in any way,"the police will deal
Also this week, Rajesh Rennie
Ali, of Freeport, appeared on
Crimewatch demanding answers
on why the police had not yet
returned his car, which they seized
in September 2010.
Ali told Ian that he had worked
hard and saved the money to buy
the white Lancer, license number
PAF 7764, but the vehicle was
seized by the police and to date
the investigating officer couldn t
provide any answers as to why the
vehicle is still with the police or
why it was seized in the first place.
Ian has appealed to the investi-
gating officer, Sergeant Bissoon,
and acting Commissioner of Police
Stephen Williams to assist.
He said there are "too many cases
involving the seizure of vehicles by
police and owners have to wait
upwards of two years to get their

contractor Rakesh Jairam, of
Gulf View, San Fernando, in

Nothing was done and he
wanted his money back.

Crimewatch, Jairam returned
$35,000 of the money.
Ramdhanie said he had tried
every avenue to get his money

He thanked Ian for assisting
him in at least getting some of

Ian is giving the contractor
