Items allegedly stolen from car in police care
Rasbert Turner, STAR Writer

The attorney representing a murder accused was advised to make a report to the commissioner of police about alleged items that were stolen from a motor vehicle that was left in the care of the Bog Walk police.

The utterance was made by Resident Magistrate Natalie Brooks in the Linstead Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, after attorney-at-law Vincent Wellesly told the court that he has been advised by his client, Kay John Daley, that the radio, battery and some tools had gone missing from his Nissan B13 motor car which was in the custody of the police.

The lawyer told the court that when the vehicle was taken back from the government forensic laboratory, he personally checked and the radio was very much intact.

He said he was disappointed that the items had gone missing.

He told the court, however, that he is not blaming the investigating officer for the missing items as he believes he is a man of integrity, however, some account must be given as to what has gone wrong.

He promised to write to the commissioner to seek regress.

Daley, who is charged in connection with the death of his girlfriend, was given a bail extension until August 13 when the matter will again be mentioned.
