CRICKET FEVER: Now that the FIFA World Cup has ended, cricket fever is gripping the country with thousands of people, including Mary Brown, left, and ...
Fingerprint experts who are assisting investigators in the larceny of $178,000 from an office at the Queen’s Park Oval have lifted prints from an envelope where the money was last stored which they are hoping will lead them to the suspect, or suspects.
The prints were lifted on Sunday after a report on the larceny of the money was reported to the St Clair police.
Newsday understands that it is the view of investigators that the larceny was an inside job, and they feel that a breakthrough in the probe was imminent.
According to reports, at about 5 pm on Saturday Karen Bynoe, Queen’s Park’s ticketing co-ordinator secured the office following ticket sales for the One-day of the CPL cricket tournament, and went away.
She recalled leaving in the office $178,000 which formed part of the money derived from the ticket sales.
At about 8.30 am on Sunday she returned to the office to resume the sale of tickets and discovered the office ransacked, and the money missing.
A report was made to the St Clair police and a party of officers led by Cpl Denny carried out investigations, and fingerprint experts were called in.
All persons who have access to the office are to be interviewed, as well as the security guards on duty at the Queen’s Park Oval, to assist officers in their enquiries.
Investigations are continuing.
