GUYANA---Local police are hot
on the trail of a Trinidadian
trickster who has so far man-
aged to illegally sell several vehi-
cles after renting them from
unsuspecting local car rental
establishments on East and West
The police detained the Trinida-
dian s accomplice, Steven Baboolall
but he was later released on
$20,000 bail. Investigators have
set up a plan to capture the mas-
termind, whose name was given
as Daniel Ali.
Police said Ali was working
with local accomplices who were
holding assets for him and even
opening bank accounts for him.
The scheme came to light last
week when several car rental deal-
ers turned up at the Vigilance and
Leonora Police Stations with
reports that Ali, who had rented
several cars from them over a peri-
od of time, failed to return the
vehicles and had in fact sold the
vehicles to other people.
On Friday, another car rental
operative turned up at the Vigi-
lance Police Station to report that
Ali had rented his car and had not
returned it by the stipulated date.
Earlier this year, Ali and
Baboolall caught the public s eye
when they moved into an apart-
ment at Roraima Housing

where they were observed spend-

up early Sunday morning to find

leave Guyana for Suriname using
the back track route.
